The Faber Mill Museum

This water mill from 1729 really takes you back to times gone by! It was built alongside a watercourse, the second tributary of the Ourthe, that created an island (the island of Oneux) in the heart of the town. It used to be the town mill and all the inhabitants were under the obligation to resort to this mill (that belonged to the lord of the fiefdom) to have their corn ground. With this came a second obligation; that of paying a tax, called “multure” that was proportional to the quantity of grain or corn.The mill functioned up to the 1960’s and bears the name of its last owner, Mister Lucien Faber, who wished to open the mill to the public. In 1989, the mill was acquired by the Hotton council.Inside the mill, spread out over 4 floors, you can admire the ingeniousness displayed by the millers in times gone by : the machinery, the millstones, the bolter, the granary…Outside, you can admire the two wheels that are driven by a tributary of the Ourthe…You can visit the mill upon prior request ; please contact the Hotton Tourist Information Office.More information?

The Fré Djame hole

The Fré Djame hole or the Brother William hole, is named after a monk that is said to have lived there as a hermit in times gone by. It is perched 20 meters above the Ourthe, affording a stunning view of the surrounding landscape. It is the remains of the tunnel that cuts right through the rocks and was formed millions of years ago.

Ny, a beautiful village and definitely worth a detour!

Nestling in the heart of a beautiful verdant valley, with two babbling brooks winding their way through the village, Ny boasts many traditionally built and beautiful houses and elongated farm houses, most of which date back to the 19th century.www.famenneardenne.be/en/hades_offre/ny-one-of-the-most-beautiful-villages-of-wallonia/

The Porte Aïve Cave

The Porte Aïve Cave (which means "high door") is located on the left bank of the Lisbelle stream, a tributary of the Ourthe and is of great archaeological (and geological) interest. Archaeological digs were carried out in the cave in 1907-1908, as well as in 1956. During the first digs, that mainly focused on the porch and terrace, a sepulture from the neolithic was discovered (9,900 to 3,300 B.C). Interesting fact: in late 1944, the Germans had set up a command post in the cave.
