On Foot around the Château de Franchimont

Credit : André Heynen

Walking the length of the imposing fortress, you realise the invincibility that the assailants who found themselves facing its enormous walls must have been confronted with. The trail snakes along the hillsides to reach what was perhaps the farmyard of yesteryear. Follow the River Hoëgne which leads us to the small town, dominated to the west by its fortified church. This is a good opportunity to discover the homogeneity of its centre, demonstrated by its perron and the Mosan-style façades. Return to Franchimont by crossing the railway. Go over the hill. The itinerary runs through pastures that you cross by way of stiles, typical of the nearby Herve region.
