Durbuy is the smallest city of Belgium. It is a very cute place, with lots of old houses, cobbelstone streets and a great setting on the banks of the Ourthe.

As you enter the city, once you’ve crossed the old bridge on the Ourthe, you face the old castle of the Graves from Ursel which was built in the 11th century and rebuilt by this family in the 17th century on the ruins of the ancient feudal fortification. You then notice the Saint-Nicolas church from the 17th and the 18th centuries (baptismal funds) and the ancient convent from the Recollects.

The Corn Hall, an old half-timbered house, stands conspicuously between the homogenous and picturesque group of houses. This house was already mentioned in 1380 and was especially used as seat for judicial and administrative activities. This house dates from the 16th century, it was transformed in the 18th century and it is now in restoration.

The region is excellent for kayaking, rock climbing and hiking. Many of these activities can be arranged either here or in Barvaux just 5 km up the road, which is the adminstrative centre of Durbuy.
