Franchimont, an ancient stronghold of the Province of Liège, stands on a rocky outcrop overlooking three magnificent valleys in the northern Ardennes, 8 km from the town of Spa. The current remains are a spectacular example of a medieval castle, reworked in the early Modern Age. Interactive tours with individual audio guide. The 11th-12 century castle forms the hub of the fortress and is surrounded by ramparts dating back to the early 16th century. This construction is a rare example of the evolution of defence systems during the Renaissance: the bunkers and their underground access galleries are one of the highlights of the tour. You can round off your visit to this romantic site at the pleasant “Brasserie de Franchimont” – a tavern with a shaded terrace facing the castle, serving meals and drinks for your picnic.
