Let your children be a knight or princess at the Bouillon Castle, the most visited family attraction in the province of Luxembourg.

Hear ye, hear ye good people! Travel through time, through the medieval history of Bouillon and its most famous crusader, Godefroid. Explore its castle, built on three rock pitons overlooking the Semois river: the oldest feudal building in Belgium, retracing a 1,000 year of history! The visit is sure to delight children and adults alone.

Do not miss: the falconry demonstration and the birds of prey museum, nor "Scriptura", presenting the evolution of writing from the Middle Ages till now.
