Ter Wallen Castle
The stately castle in Flemish Renaissance Revival style dates from 1906 and breathes history. Ter Wallen was built by Joseph Van Naemen on the exact place where homestead De Rodepoort had stood until then. The name Ter Wallen refers to the ramparts that once surrounded the farmstead.
The famous architect Walter Vercoutere provided the design. Together with his father (Jules Vercoutere) he was part of ‘Bureau Technique Vercoutere’ with head office in Ghent and a branch in Izegem. They mainly designed houses for wealthy citizens and industrialists, as well as industrial buildings.
