Pretending to attract a lot of tourists ...

Durbuy, the smallest town on earth, is still the slogan of this pictiresk little place with a deep valley of the Ardennes mountains. Charming it is, but the smallest city in the world it for sure is not (anymore). But let that not be a reason of not going here, as the place has a nice scenery to offer and a constant business with tourists coming and going from all over the globe always accounts for a certain atmosphere.

Only for the castle it's worth a visit

On the bank of the river Ourthe this wonderful castle is sitting on a rock and welcoming the many visitors to Durbuy. The castle already belongs for centuries to the family Ursel and has been renovated several times.

Typical stone buildings of the Ardennes

Durbuy holds a collection of almost all traditional build houses in the style of the Ardennes. This style reckons itself especially because of the buildingmaterial that was everywhere used and easily found. Rocks and "Lei"stone are the main ingredients. watch them closely when you are there ... it's quite wonderful how they did it in those days. Especially the "Lei"stone needs much work and a lot of patience.

    I also have my doubts about the place being the smallest town in the world, but it's a great place to visit.
