A - The clog museum

Did you know?

Life was not always just glory and adventure for Napoleon’s Great Army. Many men deserted, fleeing into the vast Ardennes forest. They owed it their freedom, but were unable to return to France. These soldiers hid and lived in the woods, emerging from the shadows later on. To survive in their new lives, they became clog-makers in Porcheresse and the surrounding villages. Legend or rumour? You will find out more when you visit…

B - Walking

A forest RAVeL

The RAVeL through the forest of Daverdisse is a pure delight. You can go for miles without coming across a road. This is one of the least known but also one of the most untamed green tracks. The path follows the torrent and plunges into the vast forest. A route that children will adore.

Take the RAVeL at the hotel ‘Le Moulin de Daverdisse’ on the N 857. Downstream, the walk is less interesting because it follows the road. The route takes you as far as Porcheresse. Eight kilometres of joy.
