A lovely historical place with amazing views from different aspects along the way. There are some lovely forested sections up the top. Unfortunately a lot of it is sectioned off for construction work.

Les Jardins d'Annevoie

Reviewed By peetersr - Gingelom, Belgium

I love the sound of pounding water. Wether it’s the waves, a waterfall or a Fountain.
Ten generations of the “de Montpellier” family, whose roots go back to the middle of the fifteenth century, have contributed to create this gem in a beautiful and lush green valley between Namur and Dinant on the left bank of the Meuse.
The “de Montpellier’s” made their fortune in the forges and foundries industry, and around 1758 one of the sons, Charles-Alexis, started the works on the famous Gardens and extending the castle around 1758, the bulk of the work being finished around 1776.
Later generations of the family expanded the Gardens and adorned them further with a combination of French, Italian and English styles. In the 1930’s the Gardens opened for the public and is now part of Wallonia’s heritage.
No water no life, no blue no green. The Gardens of Annevoie are truly unique in Belgium and are all about water. There is water everywhere you look or step. Small lakes, canals, Fountains, cascades… the water in Annevoie has been flowing non-stop for the last 250 years - there are 4 water wells on the grounds - and all this magic without any pumps or other mechanical or electrical devices.
Some 50 Fountains, cascades and water jets, and 20 ornamental ponds make Annevoie one of the most delightful Gardens in Belgium and certainly worth a visit.
Especially if you’re able to visit on a weekday avoiding the crowds who would otherwise spoil the unobstructed views of the alleys and without the noisy kids spoiling the sound of the rustling leaves, birds and rushing water.

A perfect blue sky, more or less 17°, and good company. What do you need tomorrow to have an excellent day? My girlfriend and I were looking for a railbike activity. Apparently there are not that many companies that offer this joyful event.
Upon arriving in Falaen, we easily found the reception desk and bought our ticket towards Maredsous. The first part goes uphill, so I would suggest that if your accompanied by children the adults will take care of this.
My girlfriend and I enjoyed the tour even do it took us two times more or less 15 minutes to go up and to come back down again.
Certainly visit the Abbaye of Maredsous. There is a walking path of approximately 1 km to get there from the stop in Maredsous.
Check the website for the time schedule as there is only one track!

La Citadelle de Dinant

It was between 1818, and 1821, during the Dutch occupation, that the Citadel was built in its current form. Throughout the kitchen, the bakery and the forge, you will discover the daily life of 400 soldiers that were living there. Don't forget to visite our new space 1914-1918, explaining all the fights that took place in dinant during the first world war.

Reviewed By ClaudeRakisits - Canberra, Australia

This is a very impressive structure indeed. It's definitely worth the detour to Dinant to come and see this.There are lots of things to see inside, including trenches of WWI. The view of Dinant from the Citadelle is breathtaking. And what is really convenient is that from the Citadelle, and included in the price, is a two-way ride on the telepherique to the city of Dinant. So you only need to park the car once at the top. There is no time limit as to when you have to come back up. Don't miss it!

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 !

Practically there is only one museum in the premises. The setting and explanation give you an idea on how life was centuries ago. We downloaded a coupon for 1+1 to save on entrance fees.

There is a fabulous wall to ceiling stained glass window. Nice altar piece, very gold and glittery. It is the church you see on every picture of Dinant, very unusual looking outside but fairly standard Catholic Church inside. It was a very quiet and peaceful place.
