Montaigle: a name straight from the Middle Ages. Standing on an abrupt, rocky spur overlooking the pretty Molignée valley, the Montaigle site is one of the loveliest examples of the medieval castle so dear to the Romantics. Unfortunately, it depended on the Dukes of Burgundy. It was destroyed by the troops of Henry II in 1554. It was never rebuilt, but nevertheless retains all its majesty.

At the foot of the castle, you can take the famous Molignée draisine or railbike, a flat-bottomed wagon that can be pedalled to the old Maredsous railway station. A beautiful RAVeL runs alongside, a cycle path to Anhée abbey on the banks of the Meuse.
