Teko said it was Belgium’s answer to Monschau and he was right. It’s tinier though and apparently people only speak French but the general feeling of a medieval town was the same. Being a sucker for such things I lapped it all up, and with the clouds parting to let the sun out I could see the cobble stones on the streets and the weathered timber on the houses much better. Durbuy has a lot of things going for it for sure – a healthy, meandering river runs through it, surrounded by mountains and exposed rock that give it a lot of character and food for thought to those of us who want to while away the time and escape from what’s normal. We didn’t spend too much time as there wasn’t much else to see but what we did ended up being a pleasant walk through history.
