Falaën: castles, rocks & rivers
Near Maredsous and the Molignée valley, Falaën reveals its limestone habitat from which emerge the church tower and the three high towers of the castle farm.
Crossing rural landscapes, this hike will lead you to the impressive ruins of the castle of Montaigle, like an eagle’s nest on its rocky outcrop!
The rocky outcrops of the Flavion Valley, which were home to our hunter-gatherer ancestors, and a panoramic view of the Molignée Valley accentuate the “nature” aspect of this pleasant outing.
The association Les Plus Beaux Villages de Wallonie (The Most Beautiful Villages of Wallonia) oversees a network of 31 villages, bearers of a strong territorial identity and reflecting traditional architecture. It is committed to promoting the rural, cultural and natural heritage of Wallonia and is a part of the development of local and responsible tourism.
