The best caves in Belgium

Visiting the Grottos of Han left my children in awe. Although terrified at certain parts throughout our journey through the rocks, they found that caves are pretty cool. The caves unleashed my kids’ inner Indiana Jones (always amazed at endless imagination).

The Caves of Han are known as one of the largest known cave systems in Europe, consisting of complex chambers and labyrinths. My children enjoyed the impressive subterranean passageways rich with history and breathtaking sights.

Located between the river Lesse and the Belgian Ardennes, this enormous cave has been open to the public since the 18th century. Children will be delighted to see incredibly large stalagmites and stalactites. So they’ll feel like Indiana Jones in an alien environment.

In the grottos the temperature is a constant 13°C so be sure to take a wooly jumper for your little ones.


The world is a fascinating place !
