Chassepierre Things to Do

  • Artists on the Semois river

    During the day, we could see those artists set on little boats floating up the Semois river, with trumpets and music. It was quite impressive !

  • Experience the festival !

    We were just coming back from a show, can you see we had fun ? :-) If you happen to be in Belgium at that time, and if you like street theatre, please go to Chassepierre, you won’t be deceived ! It takes place each year around the 20th of august. Entrance fee for an adult is 10 euros or 15 for two days if you book on the internet, for kids it is 6...

  • Street artists

    I've spend a day in Chassepierre with some friends last august during the Street Artist festival, and I really had a great time ! The artist you see on the picture is the one I preferred. He is called Fraser Hooper, and performed his show with a touch of British attitude, and believe me he is fun !

    During the festival, the streets of Chassepierre are also full of little shops selling arts and craft but also food and drinks. Of course, you can choose to go to one of the restaurants as well and eat some local specialties. Beer lovers will be satisfied, Orval stalls are all around :-)

    The festival is also an opportunity to discover some local products such as the "pate gaumais" (meat pie), home-made jelly, homemade sweets and ice-creams but also paintings from local artists and hand-crafted objects. And as it's not far from the famous abbey, you'll find Orval beer everywhere ;-)

    What to pay: Entrance fee for the festival : 12 euros for one day or 18 for 2.

    Even in Belgium we can have some days of heat in the summer... yes, it happens sometimes ;-) Well, then bring a hat or a cap because it can be really hard sitting in the sun to watch the artists, as it is an open-air festival, there's not much shadow. And bring some water too.

    Forgotten your cap ?

Chassepierre Favorites

  • The biggest and most original musical...

    Martin Groeneveld had the great idea to build a huge xylophone able to go on the water so that he could play us an air on the Semois.

  • The favorite street actors : Circo...

    A breathtaking show. Two street actors and a woman who is always trying to be included in the team without any success .... The two guys continue their acrobatics, unicycling, juggling and funambulism ... But finally, they are conquered but the girl who keeps following them and she becomes part of the team.

  • The most original : Popol

    You can make art with almost nothing : let your hair grow, dress as an angel, create a wheeled platform to circulate, put on some music from the heaven and say "un ange passe". Litterally "an angel is passing by", which means in French that there was an ackward silence. Simply great, funny and meaningful !!
