Thuin belfry, one of the Belfries of Belgium and France listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, offers an unforgettable visit.
Things to discover:
- A magnificent view, 60 metres high
- The history of the belfry along the way with a modern design
- Educational signs in French, Dutch and English and a film and audioguide
Begin your climb armed with an audioguide. Your guide, Rufin the bellringer, will explain the clock's mechanism and how the carillon works.
On the 1st floor you will discover the history of the belfry and its links with the village of Thuin thanks to educational signs in 3 languages. Watch the film on a big screen to discover the different stages of building that went into this iconic clock tower. You can see views from cameras on top of the belfry across four screens.
When you finish your climb, you can enjoy the splendid view from 60 metres high. And to end your visit, a little boutique sells local products.
