Villages and cities

La Roche-En-Ardenne
The town is completely dominated by the ruins of a medieval castle from the 9th century. This castle stands on a spur of the Deister, a rocky plateau above the city. La Roche-en-Ardenne is the capital of the Coeur de l'Ardenne, the centrally located 'Heart' of the Ardennes.


Durbuy 'Smallest city in the World'. This clever slogan has attracted millions of tourists to Durbuy. It is a lovely little town that lived up to their expectations. It is only 150 meters above sea level, on the border of Condroz, Famenne and the early Ardennes, hidden in the Ourthe valley, at the foot of the 'Falize', a rock made of folded, semi-circular layers of limestone.



The robust medieval castle above the old town of Bouillon dominates a large part of the valley of the Semois. Bouillon, beautifully situated on the meandering river, is a pleasant tourist town. It is the only town of significance in this area, although it barely has more than 3000 inhabitants. Anyone who has not seen Bouillon has missed one of the highlights of a visit to the Ardennes.


This place with 1300 inhabitants is the attractive and picturesque center of the Upper Ourthe. Around the place are again those endless forests. In the center is still a German Panther tank.


This is one of the queen towns of the Ardennes. Just an hour's drive from Brussels, it lies elongated on both banks of the Meuse, in the shadow of a citadel.

Due to its beautiful location, Dinant is now completely focused on tourism.


The ancient city is located in impressive surroundings on both banks of the Our. In the old town, the upper town, on the right bank stands a huge feudal castle from the 9th century.


This very old town is located on the banks of the Sûre, close to the border with Germany. It is the most famous and most visited holiday resort in the Grand Duchy, and the gateway to La Petite Suisse for those coming from the north or east. The beautiful wine region of the Moselle is not far away. The old market square, Echternach, is almost completely occupied by terraces.


Luxembourg City is an old fortified city built on top of a steep rock. You can still see this clearly in a few places. On the Pont Adolphe and in the Chemin de la Corniche you have a beautiful view of the ravine.

Luxembourg City is the capital of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

It therefore has important shopping streets of which the rue des Capucins is the main artery with interesting side streets. It is largely car-free and, in addition to department stores, it also has exclusive fashion stores.




The Belgians seize every opportunity to celebrate, so carnival processions, processions, guild festivals, medieval parades, gastronomic village meals, witches' feasts, bonfires, fairs and fairs are all the rage in the Ardennes. Of the carnival parades, the folkloric procession in Malmedy on the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday is very famous, as is the Andenne Bear Carnival on the fourth Sunday before Easter. The procession of the Chinels in Fosses-la-Ville and that of the Blancs Moussis in Stavelot also take place on that day.


A number of places organize military processions in which soldiers and officers in empire costumes carry relics. The use dates back to the Napoleonic era. Impressive are the processions of Walcourt (Sunday after Pentecost), Florennes (fourth Sunday in June) and Gerpinnes (Pentecost), but the most spectacular is the Marche Saint-Feuillin of Fosses-la-Ville, which takes place every seven years. The next time will be in 2005.


Every year between July and October, the Festival of Wallonia is celebrated in many cities, with the highlights being the summer concerts in Namur, Durbuy and Stavelot and the autumn concerts in Liège and Huy.
