Colonster Castle is located in the southern part of the Sart Tilman University Campus, 2 minutes’ drive from the E25 motorway and 10 kilometres from Liège.
Route from Brussels (E40 motorway) and Namur (E42 motorway) : at the Loncin interchange, take slip road A602 to Luxembourg and the E25 motorway.

Leave the E25 motorway and take exit #40 to “Embourg”. Turn right to cross the river Ourthe, then left towards Sart Tilman. Finally, turn right and enter the University Campus via the Boulevard du Rectorat. You will find the Allée des Érables easily: it is a beautiful, tree-lined drive on your right.

The Castle’s car park can accommodate up to 150 cars. Harmoniously curved, it is perfectly integrated into the environment without spoiling it. In springtime, it is wonderfully coloured by cherry trees in blossom.
The car park is about 50 metres from Colonster Castle. Access to the path is normally reserved for suppliers and people with reduced mobility.
