Marche-en-Famenne Nightlife

  • Pubs

    There are a lot of pubs in Marche, so whatever you do you'll somehow end up in 1, or 2. Then, you'll face another problem-a very, very long list of drinks. The best way's to ask a local to recommend something to you. Believe me, they're experts and really know what's best.

    more
  • Barbecue Party

    This was our 1st in row barbecue party. The atmosphere was really pleasant. We met the locals, talked and listened to the radio music. And, since this was the famous Belgian barbecue party, there was a lot of eating (bacon, sausages, salads...) and drinking (beer and wine, of course). something warm since it gets cold at night
