CAVES & MINES There are in the Ardennes to find many caves and mines. Especially the Han caves and the caves of Remouchaps known to the general public, but there are to be found in nine different. Part of this is open to the public, others are closed for security reasons. Clearly there are still the "caves" created by human hands. In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries there was a lot of mining in the Ardennes. All the mines are now closed, but some have been given a new function. These mines are now being used to give tourists an idea of ??how it works and life was in these mines.

After the mine in 1977 for the last closed its doors, the following are my years with water. After it was determined the mine to build a visitor center, it took many years before all the water was pumped out. Now there is a nice educational walk due to the former slate mine.

    Erg fijn vakantiehuis met kleine kinderen. Ons zoontje van 2,5 heeft heerlijk gespeeld in de grote tuin die van alles voorzien is. Voor uitstapjes en boodschappen is wel altijd de auto nodig - maar aangezien wij met ook nog een baby veel thuis bleven was dat geen enkel probleem.
