rather confusing at the entrance, where you can choose from different entry combinations, but with limited explanations. There's a numbered route to follow but explanations are very limited (no information boards). We noticed people with audioguides that could have provided more information, but we had...More

What a lovely town in the middle of the Ardennes. We took a detour and it was worth the extra kilometers. I can recommend to take a stroll around and enjoy lunch near the river

Dominating the sky line of Bouillon it is largely intact and has lots of nooks to explore. There is also a Falconry display- catch that on your visit. Offers great views of the surrounding countryside. Can definitely recommend a visit

I do not know for certain, but since it is an outside show, I doubt they would perform in bad weather.

Yes, it is worth the stop. Quaint little village. and you can walk around parts of the castle on the outside. The town looks like a postcard. We were also just looking for a place to stop and I was glad we stopped.
