The smallest medieval town.

Durbuy is located on the banks of the Ourthe River, at the edge of the Ardennes, in the Belgian province of Luxembourg, in the midst of the Liège-Namur-March triangle.

Durbuy can be easily reached by expressways and minor roads alike. Another reference point is the Ourthe Valley: Durbuy and the river are like twins, marking the boundaries of the regions of Condroz, Famenne and the Ardennes.

For a long time, Durbuy billed itself as "The Smallest Town In The World". Indeed, it was pretty small -- 400 residents or so -- and it had been granted "town" status way back in 1331. In 1977, though, Durbuy lost whatever claims it had to this distinction, as it joined with a number of surrounding communities into a single commune of 8,000 residents.

This small but enchanting place boasts a whole host of facilities. Thanks to this infrastructure it can cater for tourists, those in search of leisure activities and lovers of fine food. But on top of this it is an ideal spot for all kinds of conferences, not forgetting opportunities for small business deals.

Just nice...

Just go there and you'll be amaized...
