A beautiful hike for a whole family. Start at the parking in front of the train station Gendron-Celles. Start your walk by going under the railroad bridge and over the river Lesse. You’ll follow the river more or less continuously till the impressive Chateau de Walzin (11 century). The Chateau is not open to the public, but it’s still a nice view. From here you have to return a bit to the first railroad bridge where the tour to the Chateau de Vêves (13 century) continues. The Chateau de Vêves is open to public from 10 till 17, but not every day, so check with the Chateau the openings hours beforehand. It’s a prolonged hike with a couple of ascents, but these are easy, even for kids. Watch the signs, especially at the end of the route, as they’re scarce.

    Mooie wandeling langs de Lesse, door het Reserve Naturelle de Furfooz en omgeving, naar het Chateau de Walzin en langs het Chateau de Vêves. Ik zou de wandeling wel beginnen aan de andere kant van de Lesse tot aan de spoorwegbrug die je over moet om de loop naar het Chateau de Walzin te doen. Verder weinig op aan te merken, het was met momenten super mooi.
