Prepare for a journey through a thousand years of history at Bouillon Fortified Castle, one of the largest historical fortresses in Europe!

Rising proudly on a rocky outcrop, overlooking the Semois valley and the town, Bouillon Fortified Castle is one of the great vestiges of feudalism in Belgium.

Its impressive labyrinth of stairs, vast vaulted rooms and many secret chambers will truly immerse you in history!

The bravest among you will flit through the narrow corridors of the castle and climb its steps to access Austria Tower, the highest point of the castle, which offers a striking panoramic view over the town, the Semois valley and the Ardennes forests.

Want to get even higher? Come and discover the magic of the bird of prey show in the castle courtyard.  This spectacle full of thrills will enchant kids and grown-ups.

Also included in the castle visit is entry to the Scriptura exhibition, through which you’ll discover the history of writing, from the Middle Ages to our times.

The whole town of Bouillon welcomes you! Buy the Bouillon City Pass to visit the archaeoscope and the Ducal museum.
