Natural heritage

Hole Fré Djame
B-6990 Hotton

The trou Fré Djame or trou du Frère Guillaume, named after a monk, brother William, who is said to have lived there as a hermit, is perched above the Ourthe, giving directly onto a 20 m drop. It is what remains of a tunnel that crossed the rock from end to end and was formed several million years ago.

Isbelle Valley
B-6990 Hotton

When the Isbelle, coming from the impervious sandstone areas upstream arrives on the limestone beds just downstream of the hamlet of Mélines, it disappears and into the ground follows an underground course. This is facilitated by the presence of two small, parallel faults running perpendicular to the valley of the Ourthe.

Deulin's arboretum castle

Tel : 084/46.66.16
Web site : 

The park in its present form dates from a landscape gardening project at the beginning of the 20th century. Following the path, you will be able to identify over forty woody species. Some of these are indigenous species, the others foreign, ornamental species introduced to for the decoration of the park. They have either been planted next to our home-grown species or, for those specimens having a particularly remarkable crown or colour, on their own.

Arboretum in the Council park
B-6990 Hotton

The Council park where you can find many different wood essences is at 100m from Hotton. A pick-nick area is made and when you go upstairs on the tower you can discover a beautiful panoramic view over the villages Hotton and Melreux.

Caves of Hotton
B-6990 Hotton

Web site : 

Discovered in 1958, one of the most beautiful of the country. A few mounds, of which « the watering place », the tallest we know in Belgium. Those mounds are basins which are constructed naturally by underground waters. Marvellous rooms. And to crown the visit, the balcony dominates the cavity where you can hear the river 30m below.


Caves of Porte Aïve
B-6990 Hotton

The vast entrance room with a single, narrow, 30 meter long gallery leading off it is of great interest to archaeologists. The cave was used by man from as early as the Neolithic period. A collective burial place, a Neolithic type of necropolis, has been unearthed at the entrance terrace. There is very probably that an older (Palaeolithic) site inside the cave itself At the end of 1944, the Germans established a command post inside the cave. Geologically speaking, this cave has the particularity of running perpendicular to the rock strata, which are vertical.

By its origin, the Ourthe consists of two branches : one, the Western Ourthe (53 km long) has its source near Libramont, at Sainte-Marie (altitude: 501 m), and the other, the Eastern Ourthe (46 km long) has its source near to the village of Ourthe, near to Gouvy (altitude : 507 m). These two branches converge near Engreux (Nisramont) to form the Upper Ourthe.
