The town of Bouillon is one of the most beautiful towns in the Ardennes and is of course known for its medieval castle that towers beautifully above the town. The history of Bouillon and the castle are inseparably linked to that of Godfrey of Bouillon, the famous knight, who led the First Crusade to the Holy Land in 1096.
You can visit the castle and watch the birds of prey show.
On the belvedere, you have a great view of the region from a height of 31 metres. The climb up 161 steps is worthwhile!
Bouillon Zoo (Parc Animalier de Bouillon) is great fun for young and old! It is the largest zoo in the Ardennes and houses more than 500 animals!
Le Tombeau du Géant means Tomb of the Giant in Dutch. This piece of nature in the Ardennes is one of the most photographed spots in the Bouillon area. This is not for nothing, it is a beautiful picture, especially looking out from a hill in the area. Le Tombeau du Géant owes its name to the unusual shape that a spur of the Semois river carved out of the landscape. If you look closely, the river Semois appears to enclose a coffin of gigantic proportions.
Housed in two 18th-century buildings, the Ducal Museum in Bouillon, which translates into Dutch as the Ducal Museum, has a magnificent collection including Islamic art and medieval art.
A wide range of Belgian beer is brewed in Bouillon's brewery. For example, you can enjoy a blonde beer, the Cuvée de Bouillon, and an amber beer, La Médiévale. Seasonal beers are also produced.
The ladder walk in Rochehaut is really something for adventurous hikers! Indeed, you have to overcome several steep rock faces by using ladders. This 5.5 km hike, also called Les Échelles de Rochehaut, is one of the most fun and spectacular hikes in the Ardennes. It really is a super fun hike that you simply must have done. Nowhere else in the Ardennes is there anything comparable.
