The château in 2007
One of the owners of the château was the orangist minister Pierre-Louis Van Gobbelschroy, until the end of the Dutch period in 1829. After Belgium gained its independence from The United Kingdom of Netherlands, the château changed owners and eventually passed to the finance minister of the new Belgian government, Jules Malou (1810–1886). Malou occupied the building from 1853 onwards and the building retains his name ever since.
The château now is the property of the municipality of Woluwe-Saint-Lambert and is primarily used for cultural activities, exhibitions, etc.
The château is situated in the middle of the Parc Malou, overlooking the valley of the Woluwe River. There is a formal lawn in front of the château and beyond there is a small lake with swans and ducks.
