Explore the culture and attractions in the area

During the holidays it is great to explore the area. That really gives you the feeling of "I-am-in-a-foreign-country", maybe you even are! Other nature, other buildings, another language, something totally different. This certainly applies to the Belgian Ardennes. The wildlife parks, caves, castles or amusement parks are an experience you should not miss.

Wildlife parks, caves and mines

During a visit to one of the wildlife parks, you will see deer, wild boar and foxes in their natural surroundings. The mines and the caves are also a special attraction. Get to know the world underground in which miners performed hard work in the past. And learn about the emergence of stalagmites and stalactites, the result of a process of millions of years. For most Dutch and Flemings, the Caves of Han-sur-Lesse are the most famous caves in Belgium. With four attractions, two restaurants, a playground and a mini farm, this is a great place for a wonderful day out! The Caves of Han is the only attraction that has three stars in the Michelin guide in Belgium. Furthermore, there are well-known caves: Lorette-Rochefort cave ('Cave of Hanes' caves), Caves of Remouchamps (Aywaille), Hotton sur Ourthe Cave and Rumelange mining museum.
