Chateau Nottebohm – The Abandoned Eccentric House of Brecht

The Chateau Nottebohm (also known as Kasteel van den Heer Nottenbohm, Château de M’Nottebohm, Chateau Cheval, Chateau Maria ter heide and others) is down a long drive way off of Brasschaatbaan 32-34, in the municipality of Brecht, province of Antwerp, Belgium.

This abandoned home belonged to a Mr. Nottebohm and dates back to the early 20th century. There are postcards which feature this home that were published in 1908. There are rumors and tales that at one time the wealthy German family lived in this grandiose Belgian manor but left sometime during the second World war. After the war, Mr. Nottebohm never returned and the eccentrically styled house has been abandoned ever since.

Much of the interior is destroyed with access to the upper floors either difficult or impossible. Suggestions indicate that stability of the stately home is very bad and seems ready to collapse at any moment. The manor was thought to be haunted as well and the LPI – International (League of Paranormal Investigators) even did a case on the Nottebohm Mansion but it proved inconclusive.
