When you're on the hunt for a new home, the town over might have some nice condos, Craftsmen or Colonials for sale, but on-the-market cultural heritage sites are much harder to come by. Located in Elewijt, Belgium, a castle once owned by 17th-century master Baroque painter Peter Paul Rubens is currently listed by Engel & Völkers Mechelen, and it's oozing with all the priceless stonework, elaborate fireplaces and art history imaginable.

Bloomberg recently sat down with our in-house castle expert Christoph von Schenck, Engel & Völkers’ Head of Castles & Manor Houses, to make use of the knowledge he’s amassed in his life’s work. In his interview, he shares details on why castle owners part with their palatial homes, the fortunate buyers who get to scoop up their gems, what today’s castle market looks like across Europe and what it would take for you to own a century-old chateau. Christoph also shares where his ideal castle would be (even though he’s already the proud owner of one) because castle experts can dream a little, too.
