  • Very impressive castle that is a must when you are visiting Bouillon. The castle is huge, so make sure to reserve enough time if you want to explore everything. Really loved the bird of prey show...

  • Beautiful castle. It is quite breathtaking when you first pull into Bouillon from atop the hill on the other side and the castle is right in your view. It was totally unexpected, but a great surprise. We walked around the town and found the stairs to take us up to the castle. We also hiked down the other side. This gave us so many viewpoints for photos - loved it! At night, they run a light festival on the side of the castle. We did not buy tickets to go inside for that, but if there again would definitely do. We did watch a bit from town and it was still a good show.
  • Great place to visit. When we were there, a medieval festival was going on with food and games. Really fun! The town itself is great as well with a beautiful castle on top
