Located in the province of Luxembourg, between Durbuy and La Roche, the RIVEO Interpretative Centre features unexpected finds, all themed around rivers and their biodiversity.

RIVEO, the Rivers Interpretative Centre, welcomes visitors in the commune of Hotton, 16 km from La Roche-en-Ardenne and 8 from Marche-en-Famenne.

This educational space features a variety of spaces, activities and animations highlighting how rich the natural river habitat is:

  • A full stretch of a river, 12 metres long, has been recreated to allow visitors to observe an aquatic environment.
  • 16 aquariums featuring freshwater fish

  • A panoramic view on the pond

  • 5 superb themed gardens
