You think Bouillon is a soup? You are right, but Bouillon is also a very nice village in the Ardennes. It is situated in the south of Belgium, close to the French border.

The village lies very picturesque in the valley of the river Semois. In the loop of the Semois, you'll find the "Chateau Fort", the fantastic medieval castle. From there and from other parts of the village, you have nice views over the valley. There are several walking paths along the river or in the forests at the hills and I would have loved to stay there longer!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great castle, beautiful surrounding, lots of restaurants

    Hi Angela. Yes, I did think it was a soup, but I see it's a soup with a nice castle and even a "ballet de rapaces".

    Someone's calling this place a village :-) It's a lovely little town and a very imposing fortress!

    Well done Himalia11! My 1st visit to the Castle of Bouillon was a long time ago (almost 31 years, to be precise ...)
