Cave of Lorette-Rochefort

Reviewed By Cat M - Brighton and Hove, United Kingdom

We really enjoyed this because it didn't feel that touristy, wasn't crowded, and the guide was friendly and knowledgeable. I've visited many other caves, and although this one does not have the most impressive cave formations I've seen by any means, it still felt like a little adventure, and did have some impressively tall caverns (one in which they turn the lights off and the guide lets off a mini hot-air balloon so you can see how high it is).
Really enjoyable (but not if you had mobility issues-there are a lot of steps) and a nice escape from the crowds you might find elsewhere.

Domaine Provincial de Chevetogne

Reviewed By snailcollector - Walcourt, Belgium

A huge park with tons of thing to do and see. Many Playgrounds for kids of all ages, large ponds with row boats, BBQ facilities, places to eat, places to pic-nic. Tennis courts etc etc. A great place to spend the day. If you live in Belgium you may consider getting a season pass for your car as this is the best deal. But if you go just for one day it is also well worth the visit.

Le Chateau de Lavaux Sainte-Anne

The Castle of Lavaux-Sainte-Anne is listed as "Exceptional heritage of Wallonia". It is one of Wallonia's most famous buildings, as well as well-known symbol of the Famenne area. While strolling through the Castle, you can sometimes hear echoes from the castle's eventful past… A couple of the castle's highlights: " The walk around the moat that will also take you alongside the deer park. " Discover the inside of the fortress; you can visit it from top to bottom, from cellar to dungeon! " The Museum of the Lords of Lavaux during the 17th century : see how they enjoyed life in their luxurious surroundings. " The first floor hosts the Nature museum, and exhibits an impressive collection of stuffed animals that demonstrate the variety of the fauna in the Famenne. " The museum in the castle cellars evokes rural life in the Famenne area through typical 19th century customs, everyday objects, and celebrations. " Our wetland, a natural shelter for all kinds of animal species, is protected by the Walloon government as a natural area of "great biological interest". It is dotted with information panels packed with interesting facts. " Children will be disguised as princesses or knights, to make the adventure even more exciting !

Archeoparc de Rochefort - Malagne

Reviewed By Luca C

We went to the archaeological park when it was full of activities. This is very important, because the park itself is not really interesting, but the demonstration of daily life during the gallo-roman period is very interesting. The activities we could follow there was a roman restaurant, bakery, metalworking, tissue, balista, mounted soldiers ecc. Before going check on the website the calendar to see what activities are programmed.

Musees du Fourneau Saint-Michel

Located 8km from Saint-Hubert towards Nassogne, this open-air museum includes 50 traditional local buildings re-erected on a 250-acre site, including a school, a chapel, thatched cottages, tobacco-drying sheds, a public wash-house, farmhouses, artisans' houses and the following restaurants for visitors.

Reviewed By TicehurstDave - London, United Kingdom

It seems that this open air museum is a work in progress. There are a number of areas, each based on a region of Belgium, some complete, and some not. Of those complete, some buildings were shut, and some were in the process of being refurbished.
It's all very interesting, but to be honest, I have to say that when you have seen one 19th century rural farmhouse, you've pretty much seen them all! There werre the odd distractions, such as the church (shut) and the school house (open, but a glass partition separated the visitor from the action) there were just a lot of rural houses.
Having said that, it was a pleasant way to while away a couple of hours, with the bonus of a children's play area and picnic site towards the end of the route, to keep the children happy, and a bar, to keep me happy.
Unlike some of the open airs museums elsewhere in Europe, such as the Netherlands or Denmark, there were no interactive activities to keep the children entertained, and not such a variety of buildings. The saw mill section, for example, was all shut.
