Surrounded by moats, the castle enjoys a remarkable location, 7 km from the city of Mons, European Capital of Culture in 2015 and +/- 2 miles from a motorway exit.
Founded in 1979, the association “Les Amis du Chateau des Ducs d’Havré” aims to promote the preservation and restoration of the listed building in 1936 and its reintegration into today’s economic life. It employs 8 full-time workers under the Employment Promotion Aids (EPA) scheme. The non-profit organization is mainly run by volunteers, most of whom are present on the board of directors. Two representatives of the Province of Hainaut and one representative of the “Maison du Tourisme” in the Mons region also participate.
If you are passionate about safeguarding a classified heritage, we share common values.

Un merci particulier à nos partenaires :
Nos contributeurs dans le monde et en Belgique en particulier :
In order to finance the interior restoration of the tower of Enghien our association launched a crowdfunding campaign. The total cost of the work amounts to 356 000 €
The building permit expires in March 2019 : it’s urgent !
The Wallon Region supports our association through subsidies but only for the restoration of the old part of the tower. Contemporary fittings such as heating and electricity are entirely at our expense and just for these, the work cost 100 000 €.
The exterior restoration work has cost more than expected and our funds are not sufficient.
For this crowdfunding campaign, we hope to reach the first level : 20 000 €
Donations start at € 5. Increasing your donations will bring you to a higher donation “level” and you will then receive a special gift associated with that particular level.
