    Discover a pastoral guided walk of around 5km along the Belgian-Luxembourg border and spend 2 hours in the great outdoors.

    Outside its walls, Arlon International Scouting Museum offers this walk to discover around 10 cast iron and cut stone markers spread along the Belgian-Luxembourg border near Arlon.

    These iconic markers at the border have been in place since 1843. 507 markers are spread along the 148 km border with Luxembourg, a country with which Belgium has a shared past.

    During the walk, you will hear a presentation of the historical context, technical figures and anecdotes.


    Take advantage of this opportunity to spend two hours with your family or in a group in the great outdoors.

    Useful information


    • Departing from the Ecole Apostolique de Pères, 81 rue du Cloître in Clairefontaine (5km from the centre of Arlon, towards the former Arlon-Luxembourg road "national 4").

    • This walk really leaves the "beaten track" so it's highly advised that you wear good walking boots and long trousers. In fact, the walk takes place on paths and off them.

    • Not possible in snow as the route is impassible.
    • By appointment only on +32 (0)63 22 15 53 for groups of 10 or more people.
    • Price: €3. Free for under 12s.
