Grottes de Hotton

Reviewed By JeanLouisV - World-wide Traveller

It boasts an impressive underground cliff on the river.
But for people who would already have visited caves in Slovenia, it is nothing really spectacular, and most of the rooms and formations are just average.
Still: congratulations to the enthusiastic workers who have set up the catwalks, it must have been a major work.
You cannot walk by yourself, so must be part of a group. The guide is impressive tri-lingual and friendly, so he repeats 3 times the same story (in 3 different languages). I see that many people like this, but we find it too long waiting. You could easily visit this cave in 30 minutes, it is not worth one and half hour. Very sorry to say so, I guess it comes from our experience visiting more impressive caves in other countries.

Old Town of Durbuy

Reviewed By TomundJo - Rodenbach, Germany

Plenty of parking lots to choose from, even a shuttle bus from one of them to take you right into town. We spent a couple of hours enjoying the Topiary Garden which was beautiful, followed by a wander through the lovely cobbled streets with beautiful shops and delightful restaurants. You can do a self guided walking tour through the town. Perfect for a day trip, longer if you want to take advantage of the many local outdoor activities.

This church is the oldest in Belgium and we throughly enjoyed touring this facility. The outside dates from 1050 and has been completely restored on the inside to a very modern church. Be sure to look at the stained glass windows they are magnificent.

This is not to be missed for children and adults alike. Finding your way through acres of corn stalks high as a man is really entertaining. There are quizzes to help you find your way (English included) + little shows featuring live Peter Pan characters for the children.
Be ready to spend at minimum 2 hours in the maze. There is a snack bar at the center, but you can bring your own food and drink. Comfortable shoes are recommended. No heels or you'll sink into the wood chips covering the ground. Outside the maze area, there are smaller mazes, one made of doors that you need to push. An additional educational area features a small maze of wild flowers.

The megalithic site of Wéris is made up of 2 dolmens and about 30 menhirs, dated from the 3rd millennium BC. At the Megaliths House can you find a museum dedicated to Megalithism and the daily life of the Neolithic farmers-livestock owners. A shop offers books, brochures, maps for walking, postcards and souvenirs. In the cafeteria, with a Terrace and snacks, you can try the Dolmenius local beer.

People are friendly in this 'maison': a small museum/shop/coffeeplace. Please do not have high expectations of this museum. I love the megaliths, and that's why I came here. I took some coffee, saw the museum, looked for books in my language (Dutch) could not find them, saw a bunch of non related new age stuff, could not understand why, forgave them, went on my way. Have a coffee here, talk to the nice volunteers, then go to the megaliths.

If you've been to the War Museum in Bastogne this will pale in comparison. If you cannot see the war museum, this will be a very good way to get information about WWII with nice exhibits.

Riveo

Reviewed By adrizan - San Francisco, California

It was rainy, and we were just looking for a break. We happened to walk into this tiny little museum and probably stayed an hour. Perhaps we were extra lucky, but we had a wonderful docent who explained the river area to us. There is an exhibit even for small children. Again, it was a very small exhibit, but we found it to be scientifically interesting.

Tortuga Bar

Reviewed By Saskia D - Brussels, Belgium

During our weekend in Durbuy, we made a point of visiting this great place. The bar is decorated like a real pirate ship, floor-to-ceiling! Take your time to take it all in: the better you look, the more you see! The staff is extraordinarily friendly and the music immediately sets the mood for a chat and a drink. I was not blown away by the rum, as it was mostly basic rum with very sweet syrups added to it. Not a place for rum-lovers, but the perfect place to relax after a long day.
We were a rather large group and the bar is pretty small, so we had to split up to sit down, so be prepared if you want to come here with your whole squad ;-)

We'll definitely come back!
