Not to exaggerate; it's really not that far from Namur, but the road is bucolic and twisty. We'd been here before years ago, and I'd return again. There are multiple eating possibilities, but we chose to go the terrace route. A little food stall in...More

A beautiful Abbey and cheese factory, but in the tour you do not get to see the brewery. You can buy the beers in the restaurant and the shop, though. The lady who was our tour guide, was very knowledgable and equally unfriendly. She kept...More
