What's going on there?

by RhineRoll

Maybe the BeNeLux VT members can help me find an answer to this riddle: As I was touring the Ardenne river valleys last weekend, I was also trying to visit Durbuy. I did manage to enter the village, somewhat bewildered by the many cars that were parking well out of the place already. But then, as soon as I entered Durbuy -- boy, this IS a crowded place! Even though the houses looked very picturesque, I tried to get away from these masses as quickly as I could which proved difficult because there also was a first class traffic jam. What's the matter with this place? What makes it so popular that apparently all of Liege and half of Brussels plus a third of the Netherlands is squeezing into this tiny village???

Are there still summer holidays in Belgium?

Win,
definitely coming back, but during less popular times

Hi Win ,


Durbuy is a very popular holiday place.
You can compare it to "mini Brugges" qua houses
It's also the smallest town of Belgium.
So in the weekend it get very crowded,specially if the weather is any good.
It has some lovely houses,lots of drinking and eating facilities etc....
Don't feel like you missed that much,its a nice place to walk around for half an hour then you've seen all the house .

thanks -- weather was excellent of course, so the people poured in I guess. It's not really pleasant if such small charming places get overwhelmed by just too many people

RE: RE: What's going on there?

by prikje

I feel just the same as you about crowded places.
The weather was this holiday (juli-august) so poor that people take every chance they get for a city-trip when the sun appears.
Normally me and my girlfriend go 1 weekend to Boullion but this years there hasn't been a warm weekend worth mentioning.And now I have to work every weekend until half october so .... :(

ah I think you got the answer I was thinking to write down as well :)
extra tourists on last sunny days.
I think Herbeumont is much nicer to visit. It is about 12 km from Durbuy?
but public transport is not so well arranged.

Hi Dannie,
yes I noticed a couple of nice castles are not very far away from Durbuy. Better would have gone there, but it was already late Sunday evening, and I was already going to head back home via Liege... the good thing: These nice place are really not that far from my home :-)

RE: RE: What's going on there?

We are going to travel to Herbeumont on the weekend of 11th November.
We hired a little cabin in eurovillages there.
From there we can make more easily trips to Orval and Bouillon etc.

KEEP IN MIND that it is so very atmospheric during the weeks of the ADVENT, the weeks before CHRISTMAS..............

Book in advance..........many people KNOW about this little town and want to be there.....

Have fun and buy the nicest gifts you can find there!

I will have to return to Durbuy, meanwhile... :)

"The castle on the rock!"

My visit of Durbuy was not really a visit.

It was just some hours in the afternoon, without any preparation, either info gathering.

Don't expect that much must-see activity tips here, just impressions during some short visit.

Yet, the pics are charming. Don't you find? :)

I think that whatever the season, they would always be! The city is so charming, picturesque.

Who is going to return there with me? Raise your hand!

One condition: Not in summer neither on public holidays! Discover here why.

Thank you!
