Tourism in Wallonia is slowly starting to take off after the measures taken by the Sophie Wilmès government have eased. Animal parks open and kayaking on the Lesse or the Semois is again one of the activities that many have been looking forward to. Cafés and restaurants are still closed. But just like in Flanders you can exercise in the open air.
People with a second home will be able to spend the extended Ascension weekend there. France is also leaving the door ajar for Belgian tourism. France is now considering admitting small amounts of tourists during the summer holidays. Last week, Lemoyne said that France will have it in the summer WITHOUT foreign tourists should ask.
From a wet walk in the land of the Amblève to a visit to one of the many beautiful castles, fortresses or ruins, the Ardennes are a huge attraction for many holidaymakers or day trippers. The tourism that mostly travels to the Ardennes comes there to enjoy sports or exercise in the open air. For these tourists, there is plenty of choice in the Ardennes. In the Ardennes there are many hundreds of kilometers of cycling and hiking trails.
De Ardennen form a wooded low mountain range in eastern Belgium, northern Luxembourg and a small part of neighboring France. It is the western spur of the Rhenish slate plateau, a slate massif, which also includes the Eifel, Hunsrück and the Taunus.
