The smallest city in the world is certainly known for its paved streets, gastronomy and flamboyance, but not just that. If you come to Durbuy, you mustn’t miss its belvedere and incredible panorama: it’s time to climb up high!
Is your heart already palpitating at the idea of climbing so high? We can empathise, it’s steep. But rest assured: visiting the Durbuy belvedere is accessible to all, young and old, sporty or not... simply because to get there, you have to climb aboard the city’s tourist train. So just take a seat before enjoying the trip. We bet that the children will L-O-V-E it but not just them... Essentially, we’re all just big children.
Here we go, the little train is moving off to take you through the city’s streets. Sitting down, you’ll enjoy another viewpoint over the houses, shops and nooks. It takes you along the ramparts of the old centre before starting its climb to the famous belvedere. Here, of course, you leave your seats and walk a few steps and there’s the spectacular panorama over the region. The city, minuscule from this view, with its terraces and colours varying from grey to blue, is seen from another perspective, hidden among rolling hills. You feel big and small at the same time, observing this magnificent landscape from the highest point in the region. Allow yourself to daydream, admiring the twists and turns of the Ourthe river, whose course continues at its own pace. Shh! Just breathe and enjoy.
