Here at the Grottes de Han cave system you begin your trip from the town of Han-s-Lesse at the ticket counter where you board an open train which takes you several kilometers to the caves entrance, just a small hole in the mountainside. You little suspect the wonders you will find inside as you enter and go down the stairs.
We were unable to understand many of the explanations here because the tours are given in Belgian-Dutch, French and German, no English.
But still it is enough to just walk and enjoy. At some point you enter the Embarkation Hall where you are loaded onto a large boat, seating some 50 people. This takes you to the exit by way of the underground river. Be aware that as you near the exit they fire off a cannon or air gun INSIDE the cave, the sound and reverberations are quite "surprising", especially if you do not know that it is about to happen...

Directions: Do need to tell you that the entrance fee is a whopping 13 Euro for each adult.
