Saint-Hubert


Acknowledged as being the European capital of hunting and wildlife, Saint-Hubert is also able to look back over a distinguished past, as underscored by the very many monuments reminding us of the city's fate that was tied in with the abbey and the legend of St. Hubert for so very long. Open the door of the basilica then enjoy a stroll around the historical district...

Other sites and villages around the town of St. Hubert worth more than just a glimpse include Mirwart, with its provincial estate and fish farming and Awenne, with its fountains and "clog-makers' trail".

Recreational flight enthusiasts have the opportunity to fly in a glider, a microlight plane or a private plane from the commercial airfield. Or why not just spend some time on a terrace looking up at the sky?

The wildlifepark is the perfect spot for observing the local wildlife. You can set off on a walking tour to (re) discover the game and farmyard animals of the Ardennes.

Next on the itinerary is St. Michel's Furnace where you can delve into the lives of people living in the 19th and early 20th century rural communities. The industrial and rural heritage is evoked in the outdoor and metal-making sections of Fourneau Saint-Michel (one of the provincial museums of Luxembourg). Over 50 homes and workshops from the past have been transplanted and re-established in this outstanding natural setting. Fans of Jean-Claude Servais should be sure to visit the old "Thatched Cottage Malvoisin", which is exclusively dedicated to the comic book creator from the Gaume region. 

Those keen on seeing the "Rose prints of Pierre-Joseph Redouté are in for a treat at the museum dedicated to the memory of the man known as the "Raphael of Flowers. He was born in Saint-Hubert in the 18th century.

Various events and concerts organised in and around Saint-Hubert also offer opportunities to appreciate the special sound qualities of the hunting horn...
