The castle-fortress of Bouillon is one of the most ancient and interesting remains of feudalism in Belgium

It was built on three rocky outcrops overhanging the Semois river and is characterised by a labyrinth of corridors and huge vaulted halls.

Don't miss the falconry spectacle every day from 1 March to 11 November and every weekend and school holidays.

Take a tour around the educational exhibit on birds-of-prey included in the ticket and the exhibition on all things written: "Scriptura, from plume to PC".

You can also combine your visit to the castle with the Archéoscope Geoffrey of Bouillon and the Museum of the Duchy.


The castle and its history


The fortress, built in the 8th century, was established by Godfrey, leader of the first Crusade (1096).

It was militarily occupied until 1830 and was comprehensively renovated by the famous architect, Vauban.
