Art and nature on the ‘Path of Dreams’

Art and nature combined in a lovely, easy family walk. Nice, isn’t it? The “Sentier des Songes” – Dream Trail – is a gorgeous walk through the forest  in Herbeumont. You’ll hike around 3,5 km along a well-developed path along the Antrogne, over small bridges, and ‘dream catchers’ made by local artists. The official path is well laid out and accessible to wheelchairs, buggies and bicycles. We’ve added a short extra walk to enhance your experience. It’s not part of the original walk, but the sight is worth it.

Valley of the Antrogne

The Sentier des Songes is situated in the valley of the Antrogne, a river that flows into the Semois. You’ll get treated to a splendid view of this river thanks to the enchanting meanders and little bridges along the way. We enjoyed the peace and quiet in the forest. The walk is extra magical in autumn with the beautiful fall colors. But it’s also lovely on a hot summer day, thanks to the several stops along the river where you can swim and dip your feet.

Magical forests in la Lorraine Gaumaise​

La Lorraine Gaumaise – Gaums Lorraine – is a magical place according to the myth. In a previous post, we already described to the local legend of the fairies and their fairy caves in Étalle. A number of artists found inspiration in these legends to create several works of art out of willow wood. You can find these artworks along the trail. Some of the works fit so well into the landscape that you might even walk past them.

Would you like to keep on dreaming on your hikes? Continue along the “Dreaming path” in Montmédy (France) near the citadel or in Virton in the Zigomars’ lair.
