Hilltop panorama of Durbuy

Not sure how to go up the hill to sight the panoramic view of Durbuy (pronounced dur-bwi), I succumbed to taking the train/bus tour for a few euros. The tour roughly takes about half an hour, firstly going through the old town (this is really for old people ha-ha), then climbing up the hill for the panoramique de la ville and back down.

The train/bus service that goes through the old town and then up to hill.

I still love my old Celine sandals.

Finally, a beautiful panoramic view of the smallest city in the world, Durbuy, taken from the hilltop. Durbuy is situated in the Ardennes mountains in the Belgian Luxembourg region of Wallonia.

More views of Durbuy (and the Ourthe River that is hardly seen) from the top.

After sighting the beautiful vistas, I went on my own. The next item on my agenda is a visit to the confiturerie where jams and jellies are hand processed the traditional way, and its just 200 meters away.

I didn’t say goodbye to the train driver because he is so engrossed in a call he can’t possibly be disturbed, as well as he doesn’t speak English and Dutch anyway, so no use telling him my plans to stray away. This means I’ll be hiking back down to Durbuy. No problem.
