- MAPS: Google Maps
The arboretum in Gedinne, occuping an area of 10 ha, is situated at 425m altitude in the heart of the western Ardennes.
Like most of the arboretums in Belgium, the one in Gedinne was created at the beginning of the 20th century in 1903.
Its principal attraction is a fine collection of about fifty species of conifers. Some specimens are more than 40 metres tall.
A seed stand adjoins the arboretum - it was the first stand of Douglas Firs in Belgium.
The arboretum is accessible to people with reduced mobility.
Closed during the hunting season, please contact the organisers directly.
