Hotton caves

An exceptional site

A true jewel of the Belgian Ardenne and an outstanding natural heritage in Wallonia, the Hotton Caves are the only ones to be classified in their entirety.


A 35-meter canyon, a maze of galleries plunging into the depths of the earth…You’ll be surprised by the roar of the underground torrent. Follow the guide through a spectacular natural immersion.

Discover with your family or friends the emotion of the depths and admire the shapes and colours of the draperies and dripstones formed over thousands of years.

Why not extend your visit with a walk in our educational garden  or spend some time relaxing on the panoramic terrace or in the playground.
