  • Forges and castles

    This walk leads you along beautiful roads and paths through the southern foothills of the gigantic forest of Anlier. From the 16th century, the forges of the region produced products that were sold throughout Europe. The walk starts at the Place Pierre Nothomb and leads past the étang du Châtelet to the beautiful forest of Anlier. After a few kilometers you will arrive at the Château du Pont d'Oye from the 17th century. The road then leads to the ruins of the old Forge du Prince. A sign explains the manufacture and the main advantages of Walloon iron products from the 16th to the 18th century. From a height you can view the ruins of the whole complex.

  • Les Pairées

    This beautiful walk starts at Resteigne castle and goes along the banks of the Lesse to the picturesque village of Belvaux. From the village it continues in the direction of the Les Pairées nature reserve, a typical Calestienne landscape with calcareous grasslands and numerous juniper bushes.

  • The Abbey of Clairefontaine

    In the heart of this walk on the border between Belgium and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg you will find the Abbey and the Ruins of Clairefontaine, which was built in the 13th century at the request of Ermesinde of Luxembourg. The ruins and spring with drinkable water invite you to stroll. The visit is free. From there the circuit leads to the valley of the Eisch, runs around the old dam and crosses the border with Luxembourg in some places. During the return you can extend the walk via the Karlsberg and a dense deciduous forest.

  • The Abbey of Orval

    The Abbey Notre-Dame d'Orval, founded in 1132 and one of the most beautiful Cistercian abbeys of Belgium, is the starting point of this cross-border course of about 11 kilometers. Even though one can not visit the famous brewery and the abbey itself, the ruins of the old abbey are equally interesting. The uniform ruins (protected monument) of the old abbey dating from the 12th to the 13th century, as well as the modern buildings of the new Orval abbey, are well worth a visit.

  • The old village of Wéris

    Wéris is a member of the association of Most Beautiful Villages of Wallonia. The village deserves a visit because of the well-preserved village architecture, the Romanesque St-Walburge church from the 11th century and the picturesque and typical local houses. The walk travels through forests and fields between the Famenne and the Ardennes, and offers some beautiful viewpoints on the agricultural landscape and the many megalithic remains. Along the way you will discover some rocks and boulders with a legend associated with them, such as the Haina Stone and the Devil's bed.

  • The Roche à l'Appel

    A short but exceptional walk in the Ardenne et Gaume nature reserve with its magnificent geological rock formation Roche à l'Appel. Hikers must have a good condition to cope with the winding, sometimes quite steep paths. The circuit on and around the Roche à l'Appel is very special. Geologists from all over the world come here to amaze themselves at this rock mass which consists mainly of pudding stone.
