Franchimont Castle

The Franchimont Castle, former stronghold of the Principality of Liège, has been classified as Exceptional Wallonia heritage. It’s an extraordinary gem in the Belgian Ardennes, and a rare example of zeldzaam of the shift in the Renaissance defense system. It bears witness to the enrichment of the early 16th century.


On site you will find: a reception desk where you can buy entrance tickets, an exposition area showing scale models and ancient objects found during the digging, a video area with 50 seats and restrooms.
