Location: Namur & Dinant
This morning we set off to to the small town of Namur. At the confluence of the Meuse and Sambre Rivers, Namur is crowned by a vast citadel that was once one of Europe’s mightiest fortresses. The grounds of the citadel span 7km, with underground passages, gardens, stunning panoramic views of the valley and, strangely enough, a giant golden statue of a turtle. The old town offers many architectural treasures, including the baroque St. Loup Church which boasts marble columns and a richly carved ceiling. </p><p> We continue to Dinant, a beautiful town situated perfectly on the River Meuse. The skyline is dominated by the imposing citadel that sits high above the town, an ancient fortress that has lasted almost a millennium. The town itself contains the most impressive architecture in the Collégiale Notre Dame de Dinant; a Gothic marvel that boasts an onion-shaped dome. </p><p> We continue to Houffalize in Belgium for four nights. </p>
Included morning excursion to the pretty riverside town of Durbuy. The town dates from medieval times and is often referred to as the smallest town on earth with less than 400 residents. Enjoy a gentle stroll around the town.
Join our optional excursion, which takes us to historic Bastogne, forever associated with the Battle of the Bulge during World War 2. We drive through Foy where the 'Band of Brothers' fought, see the Mardasson Memorial and the Sherman Tank in Bastogne. We return to our hotel for Christmas lunch.
Enjoy the enchanting Christmassy atmosphere at Liège’s 'Christmas Village’, situated on St Lambert square and the market square. The ‘Christmas Village’ is over thirty years old, and one of the largest in Belgium.
