Meuse Cycle Route
In Belgium, the landscape of the Meuse is characterised by dramatic rock faces many with castles perched on top. In Dinant, the citadel towers above the distinctive onion dome of its church. Another castle overlooks Namur, the capital of Wallonia, at the confluence of the rivers Meuse and Sambre. Further downstream, you can visit the forts of Huy and Liège, the 'Ville Ardente', with its impressive new train station designed by the famous architect Calatrava. After passing the city of Visé, you have the choice to continue on the east bank or discover Belgian Limburg along the charming west bank of the Meuse.
