Durbuy, the smallest town in the world!

Although Durbuy is the smallest town in the world, its influence on a visitor is in no way small. It may not be one of the most happening cities, but has a certain old-world charisma that never goes out of fashion. Ramble through its old town to savour the dainty streets that are cobbled and narrow. Loiter around the ancient houses with flowered porches and windows. Sip coffee at one of the quaint cafes and simply soak up the mesmeric atmosphere. And if that’s not enough, visit the unique Topiary Park or take in the beautiful views of the town and the valley of the River Ourthe from Belvedere.
