These Heritage Days are the perfect opportunity to discover different places usually closed to the public. Around Wallonia on 13 and 14/09/14!


Discover or rediscover the richness of Belgium's cultural heritage.

More than 350 activities are organised in 117 towns.

Take part in dozens of animations in the five provinces, walks and rides with all means of transport and a number of exceptional discoveries.

This year's theme is "memorial sites".

The 20th century hasn't been spared of conflicts.

In 2014, we will commemorate the centenary of the beginning of the First World War...but that's not all.


This year is also marked by the 70th anniversary of the beginning of the Battle of the Bulge, which saw the end of the presence of troops from the 3rd Reich on our territory.

With memorial sites, we think particularly about: combat zones, cemeteries, war memorials commemorating lives lost, plaques, headstones, fortifications...

Each heritage site, being witness to significant events during the two world conflicts will also be present on the programme.

Come and celebrate all types of heritage:

  • Rural heritage,
  • Industrial heritage,
  • Exceptional heritage,
  • Archaeological heritage,
  • Small popular heritage...

A new feature introduced in 2013: Heritage Mondays.


This new operation for youth will be re-launched and aims to help the very young discover heritage sites.

Sites open during the Heritage Days weekend will be accessible to secondary school children.

Craft demonstrations in each location will promote exchanges between craftsmen and pupils.
