The first time the name Den Brandt shows up in the chronicles is around 1396. There is some mention that there was a farm on the location of this castle in 1558. In 1772 the farm is rebuilt and starts to look more as the current castle. Charles-Antoine della Faille de Waerloos and his wife Isabella Bosschaert buy the property in 1804. The castle gets rebuilt in 1865. della Failles sells the castle in 1910 to the German banker Kreklinger. After the death of Madame Kreklinger the family sells the domain and the city of Antwerp buys the property in 1965. You can find the castle in the green belt of Antwerpen, near to the park of Middleheim. It is nowadays used as a center for seminars.
