Durbuy, known as the gateway to the Ardennes, has been chosen as an exceptional destination by the EDEN project as much for the charm of the city than for its focus on sustainable initiatives when it comes to tourism.
Built in 1331, its picturesque streets, having retained a medieval atmosphere, make it a favourite destination in Wallonia. Known as the "the smallest city in the world", Durbuy tried to find the perfect balance between tourism and protection of its cultural heritage by involving the whole population. Much of the tourist accommodation consists of smaller, family-run hotels and B&Bs and independent shops and delis are strongly supported.
