- The most beautiful villages of Wallonia
From its rocky spur, Limbourg overlooks the whole of the region. Take a stroll through this former fortress, wandering from one street to another, admiring the Saint-Georges square, paved with pebbles taken from the riverbed: the village kept its medieval charm. A real gem!
A preserved architecture
Capital of the former duchy of Limbourg, this village once was an invincible fort. It was strategically built by the Vesdre river, between the bocage and the Ardenne mountains. When you walk in the old town, the narrow perpendicular streets are evidence of a safeguarded medieval layout. Since the 18th century, its physiognomy has barely changed for that matter. The architectural simplicity confers harmony to Limbourg: a style that you can see in its houses with stone facades and foundations of limestone blocks. The Saint-Georges gothic church, for example, will take you back to medieval time. So will the village hall (Arvô), Fountain of the Blessed Virgin, its timeless streets and castle.
Art and history
Set in the former village hall, also the court of justice, right on Saint-Georges square, Espace ARVO is worth stopping by. The ground floor is home to the tourist office (the team will be delighted to share their favourite places with you) and also features a model of the village. You will find a lovely art gallery on the first floor, with varied exhibitions all year round.
Treats for gourmets
The Brasserie Saint-Georges, on the main square, serves a large choice of regional specialities, to be paired with one of the 100 beers on its menu. Its warm atmosphere is sure to enchant you.
