Rocroi Virton via de route des legendes
Het middelleeuw kasteel van Bouillon, één van de blikvangers onderweg (Rp11)
This fairytale route starts in the village of Revin in the middle of the French Ardennes. This well-defined ride is one of the most beautiful Ardennes routes and traverses both the French and Belgian Ardennes.

First we cross the French Ardennes from west to east along the banks of the Maas.
Along the way we pass numerous beautiful views to which many stories and legends are linked such as Mont Malgré-Tout (Rp2) with a beautiful panoramic view over the Meuse valley, Les Dames de Meuse (Rp3),
Roc-la-Tour or the Devil's Castle and La Roche à Sept Heures (Rp5) and the statue of the four Aymon brothers (Rp6).

Please note that Roc-la-Tour and La Roche à Sept Heures can only be reached on foot.
A walk of 2 km downstream leads you to Roc-La-Tour and via a narrow hiking trail with many panoramas you can reach La Roche à Sept Heures.
An information panel on the parking informs about the different routes.

After we have exchanged the banks of the Maas for those of the Semois, the road takes us to Belgium in the region around Bouillon. Here the Semois winds through the landscape. This ensures beautiful views over different meanders (Rp 9 and 14), each with its own story.

Near Bouillon (Rp12) we have a view over the medieval castle. The castle is definitely worth a visit. It is also the ideal place to stop for lunch.

After the stop we follow the winding of the Semois further to the Southeast. Along the way we pass the Château de Fées (Rp19), the ruins of a Roman castle and the Feeënspelonk (Rp29), a rocky overhang, pierced with corridors and holes. There are many myths and legends associated with both sights.

The route ends in Virton at the tourism office. From here, the E25 Luxembourg-Liège motorway is easily accessible.

About this region
Wallonia (; French: [la] Wallonie [walɔni]; German: [das] Wallonien [vaˈloːni̯ən] (listen) or [die] Wallonie [valoˈniː]; Dutch: [het] Wallonië [ʋɑˈloːnijə] (listen); Walloon: [li] Walonreye [walɔnʀɛj]; Luxembourgish: [d']Wallounien [vɑˈləʊ̯niə̯n], Latin: Wallōnia or Vallōnia) is a region of Belgium. As the southern portion of the country, Wallonia is primarily French-speaking, and accounts for 55% of Belgium's territory, but only a third of its population. The Walloon Region was not merged with the French Community of Belgium, which is the political entity responsible for matters related mainly to culture and education, because the French Community of Belgium encompasses both Wallonia and the majority French-Speaking Brussels-Capital Region. The German-speaking minority in eastern Wallonia results from World War I and the subsequent annexation of three cantons that were initially part of the former German empire. This community represents less than 1% of the Belgian population. It forms the German-speaking Community of Belgium, which has its own government and parliament for culture-related issues. During the industrial revolution, Wallonia was second only to the United Kingdom in industrialization, capitalizing on its extensive deposits of coal and iron. This brought the region wealth, and from the beginning of the 19th to the middle of the 20th century, Wallonia was the more prosperous half of Belgium. Since World War II, the importance of heavy industry has greatly diminished, and the Flemish Region has surpassed Wallonia in wealth as Wallonia has declined economically. Wallonia now suffers from high unemployment and has a significantly lower GDP per capita than Flanders. The economic inequalities and linguistic divide between the two are major sources of political conflicts in Belgium and a major factor in Flemish separatism. The capital of Wallonia is Namur, and the most populous city is Liège. Most of Wallonia's major cities and two-thirds of its population lie along the east-west aligned Sambre and Meuse valley, the former industrial backbone of Belgium. To the north of this valley, Wallonia lies on the Central Belgian Plateau, which, like Flanders, is a relatively flat and agriculturally fertile area. The south and southeast of Wallonia is made up of the Ardennes, an expanse of forested highland that is less densely populated. Wallonia borders Flanders and the Netherlands (the province of Limburg) in the north, France (Grand Est and Hauts-de-France) to the south and west, and Germany (North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate) and Luxembourg (Capellen, Clervaux, Esch-sur-Alzette, Redange and Wiltz) to the east. Wallonia has been a member of the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie since 1980.
