5. Miranda Castle, Belgium
Starting off with the creepyest castle on this list we have Miranda Castle also known as Noisy Castle. its a 19th century neo-gothic castle in Celles, Belgium.
The castle was built by the english architect Edwar milner back in 1866. He was commisioned by the very welthy Beaufort family that left their old castle during the French Revolution. The unfortunate thing is that Milner died before the caslte was completed and it was completed in 1907.
The castle has seen alot of things trough-out the years. The family lived there until the nazis came in world war 2. Actually a portion of the Battle of the bulge took place right on this property. It was later taken over by the National Railway Company of Belgium in 1950. It was used as an orphanage and as a holiday camp for sickly children until the late 1970’s
Today the castle has been abandoned since 1991. The cost of maintaining the property just wasn’t profitable and the search for investors failed. Despite all this it has been a favorite destination for urban explorers, or just people that loves abandoned buildings. i mean a completely empty castle you can roam around in? Seems pretty cool. However people has been vandalising the castle and it was closed to the public in june 2016.
