Orval’s brewery has much more to offer than just beer. Discover the beautiful gardens, the old ruins, the former monastic life and the brewing process. Enjoy the aftertaste in the brasserie next to the brewery or at home with a piece of delicious abbey cheese and a glass of cold abbey beer.
Are you looking for a short, relaxing walk in the vicinity of Lacuisine? Then this hike along the “Dream Trail” in Herbeumont is a great idea. You’ll hike around 1.6 km along a well-developed path along the Antrogne, over small bridges and through the forest. The path is well laid out and accessible to wheelchairs, pushchairs and bicycles. Along the way, you will come across various wooden works of art ” dream catchers ” made by local artists.
Valley of the Antrogne
The walk is situated in the valley of the Antrogne, a river that flows into the Semois 2 km further on. You’ll gat 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 colours. But also lovely on a hot summer day, thanks to the several stops along the river where you can swim and paddle.
Magical forests in la Lorraine Gaumaise
La Lorraine Gaumaise – Gaums Lorraine – is, according to the myth, a magical and enchanting place. 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.
