A viewpoint listed as ‘exceptional heritage of Wallonia’ since 1947. This is a panorama that’s worth a detour, don’t you think? More than just a detour, the Roche-aux-Faucons will take your breath away with its beauty!
Nestled in the heart of Neaupré municipality, nature lovers will adore one of the most beautiful panoramas in Belgium: the Roche-aux-Faucons culminates at around 230 metres high, giving you a view from a good height. The spectacle before you is magnificent. Perched on this limestone cliff, you’ll see the river running several hundred metres below, at this precise point skirting the Ham plateau, which extends from Esneux to Hony. The result is a splendid loop outlining the landscape.
In the distance, you can also make out the terraces of the Ourthe. And the falcons? It’s true, they have their role to play in this story because the Roche-aux-Faucons is named after them. For centuries, the location was a high nesting place for peregrine falcons, which unfortunately disappeared in the last century. But the spectacle is no less impressive. To reach this location, put on your walking shoes and set off on one of the many routes that take you to this site, revealing the interesting nooks in the region. And good news: most of these paths are accessible for pushchairs and dogs are permitted.
