I'm planning a trip to Belgium in 2 weeks and I'm wondering how to get to Bouillon from Namur... looks like the bus is the only option but I can't find any information for this route. I'm also wondering if there's a place or lockers or some place to leave luggage in Bouillon. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
My husband and I will be there in early May and touring the WWII sites while staying in La Roche. Do you think 3 days and 2 nights is long enough? Virginia
I will be spending a week in Vielsalm Belgium and one of my day trips will be a visit to Bastogne and the surrounding area. My plan is to load my bicycle on the train at Vielsalm and make the quick 10 minute ride to Gouvy. From Gouvy I will bike into the Foy and Bastogne region and spend the entire day cycling around the WW2 battle grounds. I really want to spend a lot of time in the area surrounding Bastogne and with a bicycle I think I will be able to do just that. I am looking for some out of the way cafes to eat lunch and maybe drink a beer. Any ideas would be great. Also I am open to the idea of staying a night in Bastogne or nearby. Can anyone give me some ideas on Bed and Breakfasts or small family run Inns.
Hi I wonder if anyone can help.Theres a motorcycle rally held near Bastogne at the end of July or beginning of August,could you tell me the name of who to contact and a email address ? Thankyou
I will be going to Bastogne in November for 3 days. Are there any war walks, guides to where the 101st para/regiment had their positions in and around Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge. Can you reach these on foot as I will not be travelling in car. Are there any local buses or railways close by.
A friend and I are traveling through Europe this winter and we are stopping by Bastogne. He was there for the 60th Anniversary of the Battle of The Bulge. He took part in the the huge parade and other celebrations with veterans and commemorations, and a military type show. We were both wondering if this was something that happened every year or was it only for the 60th Anniversary? Luke
This is a long shot! Last July/August I asked for advice on this site for a suitable stop-over in Belgium. Someone suggested Durbuy and on his recommendation we booked a hotel there. We really, really loved it and had a fabulous few days there. I had never heard of the place before and was so glad to discover it. I intended thanking the person who made the suggestion but cannot find the post. I can find my post making the request and two replies but not the one suggesting Durbuy. It could have only been this site (Trip Advisor is the only other one I use.) Anyway, many thanks and - Durbuy is a lovely little town - a chateau, restaurants, pleasant shops, villagy atmosphere, river activities and the hotel we stayed in - Hotel Sanglier Des Ardennes, was great.

My friend & I will arrive in Brussels May 5th. We wish to go to Bastogne and tour the memorials, cemetery, historical center, etc. 1)Is the historical center, etc., open on Monday? 2)do you recommend Americans driving from Brussels to Bastogne in a rental car, and tour on our own, or, do you recommend a tour guide to pick us up in Brussels, drive us to Bastogne, and give us a tour of the area. If you recommend a tour guide, which one do you recommend?
I will be traveling to Brussels on June 13. I would like to make a day trip to Bastogne. Question? I assume that rail service is available. How long would a round trip take and at what expense.
I will be in Paris (from the U.S.) and hope to travel via train to visit the Battle of the Bulge (BOTB) sites. 1) Is it possible to travel by train directly to Bastogne from Paris? If not - which route do you recommend? 2) I do not want to rent a car - are guided tours of the Battle of the Bulge available in Bastogne? 3) Hotel recommendations for Bastogne? 4) Is Bastogne the best city to stay in for visiting the BOTB or do you recommend someplace else? Thank you! Mirish St. Paul, MN
Maybe the BeNeLux VT members can help me find an answer to this riddle: As I was touring the Ardenne river valleys last weekend, I was also trying to visit Durbuy. I did manage to enter the village, somewhat bewildered by the many cars that were parking well out of the place already. But then, as soon as I entered Durbuy -- boy, this IS a crowded place! Even though the houses looked very picturesque, I tried to get away from these masses as quickly as I could which proved difficult because there also was a first class traffic jam. What's the matter with this place? What makes it so popular that apparently all of Liege and half of Brussels plus a third of the Netherlands is squeezing into this tiny village??? Are there still summer holidays in Belgium? Win, definitely coming back, but during less popular times
Does anyone know a nice B&B, farmhouse accommodation the the Luxembourg countryside, not too far from somewhere to est/ Or maybe a small cottage to rent for first week in November?
I would like to know something about history of your town and to see any photos.
Hi, While I stay in Brussels, I would like to see something of the area where the WWII battle was fought near here, and perhaps a military cemetery. Can I get to there by train and be able to see anything from the station on foot? Are there tours to this area? I am not renting a car on this trip, so I am not able to see some things I would like if they are not accessable to trains. Should I go to Luxembourg?
Where are resteraunts in the Luxembourg area
My wife and I will be in Bastogne on August 3 and would like to meet VT members from this area. I have just become a member here and think this is a great site for making new friends and meeting other world travellers. This is our first trip to Belgium and we are looking forward to it.
My family, and my sister's family (in all four adults, one child, two infants), are planning on renting a villa/gite in the Ardennes next May, and I was wondering about the best way to travel from the UK. We live in Manchester, and thought about a ferry crossing from Felixstowe (it's much eassier to get to than Dover) to Zeebrugge, but it seems no ferry companies actually do this route (which seems peculiar, but there you go). Anyone here travelled from UK to Ardennes, which route did you take? Also, anyone know of any great places to stay in the Ardennes? I, personally know very little about the place, other than Bastogne.
6 freinds on ww2 trip, also want to stay in location with good hotels and restaraunts with street dining, and good scenic area, Does Bastogne meet that criteria or is it industrial city. I cannot find any photos of are on internet, can anyone advis.
