A walk along the Château de Franchimont

This 5 km walk by the Château de Franchimont reveals the full beauty of the medieval fortress and the Hoëgne valley.

The path then takes you through grazing lands, which you will cross using styles typical of the region.

A walker's guide to Wallonia

If you were to draw a straight line on an atlas northward from the Massif Central in France to the North Pole, the only area of high ground the line crosses is the Ardennes, shared between Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany – but mainly belonging to Wallonia, the southern part of Belgium!
