On Foot, overlooking Bouillon

Description

One always comes back to Bouillon... Leaving the thousand-year-old town, the image of the Pont de la Poulie (bridge) is reflected in the pure waters of the River Semois. With its stone arches, it offers the most beautiful foregrounds of the Château de Bouillon. An impressive fortress, developed until the 19th century by successive owners, it remained famous due to the hero of the First Crusade, Godfrey of Bouillon... After crossing the Pont de la Poulie (bridge), walk along the river Semois which flows below, pulling on long ribbons of emerald green. The trail goes towards the Abbaye de Cordemois. The road becomes a path and then a corbelled trail. At the Moulin de l’Epine (Mill), nestled in its splendid isolation, find the authentic Semois, unfurling its silver trail. We leave it by climbing a donkey trail, leading to the viewpoints of the Epine and then the splendid viewpoint dominating Bouillon. It is the start of a dizzying descent towards the town of Godfrey.

Bouillon

Bouillon, situated on the banks of the Semois, will delight tourists who love history and nature. The magnificent castle, set on a craggy rock, was the home of Godefroid de Bouillon before he set off on the Crusades. This is not the only link between history and Bouillon. The castle’s story spans a millennium: it’s the oldest vestige of feudalism in Belgium and one of the most remarkable fortresses in Europe. A journey through time can be supplemented by a visit to the Ducal Museum and the Archeoscope. visitwallonia.com/en-gb/3/where-to-go-in-wallonia/walloon-towns-and-cities/bouillon
