Rondje Ardennen tussen Dinant en Bouillon
We leave along Houyet. Just past Hastière-Lavaux we drive south. From Vireux-Molhain we opt for smaller jobs.
In Rochehaut we stop for a moment. Rochehaut owes its name to the special location that gives the village a view over one of the most beautiful panoramas. It looks over two valleys. In one valley, a loop of the Semois surrounds the village of Frahan.
20 km further you arrive in Bouillon. From afar you can see the 'Castle of Bouillon' lying on a long rock crest, incised by the Semois. It is one of the oldest feudal remains in Belgium. The climb upwards is rewarded. From the reconstructed tower you have a beautiful panoramic view of the defense system, the city and the meanders of the Semois. This is a busy tourist town with a lot of restaurants.
From here we continue north. In Maissin we visit the French-German War Cemetery. The cemetery lies just to the north-west of the village center, along the road to the Lesse. The cemetery contains 512 fallen Germans and 282 French. In two mass graves 3,001 unidentified Frenchmen are resting and finally there is a shared mass grave with 683 French and 343 Germans.
A little further we arrive at Redu.
Redu (borough of Libin) is not only known internationally as a 'book village'. On the territory of Redu, about one kilometer outside the village, there has been an important ground station for many years, which today is mainly used by the European space agency ESA. The Redu station has played a very important role in European space travel over the past decades.
After we have driven the E411, we turn left to the Euro Space Center. The only center in Europe where you can get into the skin of an astronaut. The Euro Space Center is a theme park that lets you dream of space. You start at the gates of our galaxy and discover a different side of our planet Earth. A fun and educational adventure for the whole family.
Just before Lessive, the antennas of the Ground Station for Telecommunications via Satellites were opened in 1972. The station has several large satellite dishes to receive signals from satellites. Belgacom sold satellite communications to an Indian company at the beginning of the 21st century.
10 km away we are back at our starting point.
