About The Arenbergs

The very word ‘nobility’ fires the imagination. Particularly in the case of higher-ranking noblemen who have access to royalty, it conjures up images of grandeur and magnificence, elegance and refinement, of the glitter and glamour we associate with the jet set today, but the word also has the aura of a heightened sense of elevated purpose, of culture and history.

The Arenbergs are members of the higher nobility. A prestigious exhibition at M - Museum Leuven will tell the story of the Arenberg dynasty itself and, above all, of its collection. Artworks from that collection are being brought back together for the first time and put on public display. The exhibition is the focus of a wider cultural project that also brings the Arenbergs to life in the city of Leuven.
