Ardennes - St- Hubert

The Belgian Ardennes are famous for their legendary woods, rolling hills, humid, fresh climate and an ancient tradition of cattle breeding.

In autumn the forests change into an impressive coluor paradise. In summer you can enjoy a pleasant early morning walk, surrounded by beautiful nature.

The Ardennes, also known as Ardennes Forest, is a region of extensive forests, rough terrain, rolling hills and ridges formed by the geological features of the Ardennes mountain range and the Moselle and Meuse river basins.

Much of the Ardennes is covered in dense forests, with the mountains averaging around 350–400 m in height but rising to over 694 m in the boggy moors of the Hautes Fagnes region of south-eastern Belgium.

The region is characterized by steep-sided valleys carved by swift-flowing rivers, the most prominent of which is the Meuse. In spring, when nature is in full bloom, the Ardennes are simply stunning.

As you walk through the woods and deserted paths and country lanes with magnificent views, the only sound you can hear is the birds and the flowing water of the numerous streams. You wouldn’t be the first to notice a group of deer, a fox or a wild boar, during a hike. This beautiful, untouched nature is often why many outdoor enthousiasts will return to this unique area.

The plants in the Ardennes are rich, extensive and varied: you’ll find oak, willow, birch, poplar and acacia trees in between nut trees, fruit trees, hazel, holly, elder, and many others. Delicious jams are made from the blackberries, raspberries and wild strawberries, that grow here. The Ardennes are a true herb garden. A variety of medicinal and culinary herbs grow here as well, such as marjoram, wild mint, wild thyme, lemon grass and juniper.

The Legend

The Legend

Saint Hubertus or Hubert (c. 656–727 AD) became Bishop of Liège in 708 AD. He was a Christian patron saint of hunters, mathematicians, opticians and metalworkers. Known as the Apostle of the Ardennes, he was called upon, until the early 20th century, to cure rabies through the use of the traditional St Hubert’s Key.
