When walking through the rather busy Hospitaalstraat, you cannot miss the pastel pink façade of Castle Moeland, one of the stately castles in the city of Sint-Niklaas.

The neoclassisistic castle was built in the 18th century. In the 1830s, the early days of the Kingdom of Belgium, it became the property of the mayor of Sint-Niklaas. In 1833, when inspecting the fortifications on the left bank of the Scheldt, King Leopold I stayed here for four days.

In 1877, Amedee De Schouteete de Tervarent, the knight who married the mayor’s daughter, created the biggest historical sight the castle has to offer: the renowned Egyptian wing. In this former dining room, pharaohs, temples and pyramids take you on a magical trip through ancient Egyptian history.

After serving as a home for the elderly for quite some time, today Moeland Castle is part of the city's hospital, AZ Nikolaas.
