Just a short drive away from Liège, you will find the Grottes de Remouchamps, a spectacular network of underground waterways running for almost a kilometre. Boat tours of the caves take visitors through the maze-like structure, culminating in the “cathedral”, a 40-metre tall cave, full of dripping stalactites and with a huge natural arc. With a restaurant and a museum on site, the Grottes de Remouchamps is fun for all the family. Abundant on-site parking means travelling there with a Europcar hire car is easy and convenient.
Perched on top of a rocky outcrop 60 metres tall, the Medieval Château de Modave looks out over a 1,100 acre nature reserve. With 25 rooms, historical displays, and sprawling gardens, there is plenty to explore at this charming castle. Make a day of it and eat at the on-site restaurant, or take a walk through the vast surrounding forest. Just a 30 minute drive from Liège, the chateau is easily accessible by car.
