Feel like a real knight in the Bouillon castle

If there is one thing you can't miss during your motorhome trip in the Belgian Ardennes, it is a visit to a castle. One of our favourite castles in the Ardennes is Bouillon Castle.

In the 8th century the first fortifications of this castle were already in place. During a tour of the castle the guides will tell you all about the origins of the castle and the different purposes through the years. Of course you can also choose to discover the castle yourself by means of a map. Walk through the old dining hall and admire all the remains from the Middle Ages. In the courtyard there are even raptor shows organized. How special is that! This is not all that the Bouillon Castle has to offer, from the castle you also have a magnificent view of the city, the river and the valley.

Spa: the pearl of the Ardennes

Time to visit the "pearl of the Ardennes": the town of Spa. This is due to the mineral water and the thermal baths. The town was a spa centuries ago.
