This picturesque city in Belgium’s Walloon region is reminiscent of a storybook with its winding cobblestone streets and location nestled in a valley. Surrounded by rolling hills, this city is also known as the ‘smallest city in the world.’ Durbuy is nothing short of activities and has something to suit everyone’s fantasies.
This charming restaurant is a must for anyone wishing to slip away to an even more intimate space in this magical city. While Durbuy itself is not lacking in that department, La Canette takes the mood one step further and does so with a hint of yesterday. Decorated with vintage and antique finds, it is easy to wander back in time while looking at the unique objects that are placed throughout the venue. The food here changes seasonally and includes something for everyone’s taste, such as traditional Belgian specialties or even more unusual options.

A visit to Radhadesh at the Chateau de Petite Somme will take you on a vivid tour of India and its culture juxtaposed with that of Belgium. This fully renovated 11th-century castle offers the opportunity to practice yoga, learn the art of Indian cooking, receive a guided tour of the castle and its rich history, and even visit a sacred art museum all while viewing the beauty of historical Belgian architecture. Because this castle is a little slice of India, there are many exciting festivals and events to experience here as well, giving visitors the chance to celebrate Indian traditions and culture in the heart of Durbuy. With that being said, to see the castle alone is enough to prompt a visit here!
Just a quick drive from the city center, the Durbuy Labyrinth is yet another exciting adventure to take on during a visit to this lovely region. Each year, a fully themed corn maze is created here that even includes actors throughout, which adds to the fun. Not only this, but there are various other attractions housed at this location, including a vegetable garden and another riddle-filled wooden maze that will put your puzzle-solving skills to the test. This is truly the place to visit for those who are young at heart.
