today, the landmarked stately mansion serves as seat of the government of the German-speaking Community of Belgium. On the open side of the horseshoe-shaped three-wing layout, an entrance portal separates the forecourt from the interior court. From the rear side of the building, a small adjoining park can be reached. The property houses the government offices and numerous premises of representative character.
