Come to Wallonia to enjoy a Belgian culture fused with a heavy dose of France, spiced with a hint of Dutch and German influence.
The historical highlight of Wallonia is Waterloo, where the Anglo-Dutch and Prussian troops conquered Napoleon's forces in a bloody battle in 1815. Be sure to visit the hill crowned by a bronze lion built to memorialize the event, and while you're there, keep your eyes open; the odd traveler still turns up a relic from the skirmish among the peaceful fields and meadows. Continue your historical travels at Bastogne and Arlon in the east where the soldiers who fell in the World War II Battle of the Bulge rest.
While the Ardennes are not known for their sky-scraping heights, they are nonetheless the site of a great many thrill-seeking tourists. Rafting, cycling, paragliding and more await the adventure-minded.
The rich spirits of Wallonia are not found in the vineyards but in the breweries. Walloons are known for their beer, and some of the most famous hops-inspired artisans in the world reside in the southern part of Belgium. Three Trappist abbeys known the world over for their beer brewing are in the wooded hills of the region.
Whatever your tastes, we offer cottage and apartment accommodations, as well as campsites, for your relaxation.
