Castels and forts


Immerse yourselves in the peaceful environment of the Haute Sambre valley. Between incised and wooded valleys, this circuit visits impressive mediaeval heritage in Thuin, Lobbes and Beaumont. You’ll immediately succumb to the charms of the Unesco-listed Thuin belfry, the charismatic Saint-Ursmer collegiate church or the bucolic ramparts of Beaumont. And the Leers-et-Fosteau castle calls to mind swashbuckling adventures. Relaxation is guaranteed at the Biercée distillery with its brandies, liqueurs and gins. A family ambience awaits at the Erquelinnes brewery where you can taste delicious natural pure malt and unfiltered beer, or even make your own mash.
