Durbuy is within the Belgian Ardennes a must see activity on itself. Pretending to be the smallest city in the world (which it no longer is since 1977 when it fusioned with the neighboring villages and if it ever was it cannot be proven anymore). It is situated at the winding Ourthe-river. It was founded in the 11th century. In the 14th century Durbuy was granted city rights by Count John of Bohemia and was always in conflict with the bishop of Liege. Because of it's safe situation in the valley of the Ourthe and it's actual insignificance, it was not many times the focus of attack.
