This place (the so cold smallest town) used to be a cozy and nice place to visit but now it's just too much cleaned and lost it's authenticity. Also prices of food and beverages are far too high, even for a touristic location. I won't go back

The village of Durbuy is small but very authentic and 100% charm. It is literarily like stepping out of a time machine that took you a few hundred years back. Except there is nice restaurants and some cute shops.
Crowded even on a cold day in January but well wort a few hours of your time. Take the time to eat at one of the plenty of restaurants available. If you take the little train (or walk I guess) up the hill you get a superb birds eye view of the village.

Small and nice historical city center. You can walk in 15 minutes from one side of the center to another side. After one hour of walking around there is nothing much to do here. I also lacked some good available restaurants or cafés. Considering this area to be super packed by tourists, I didn't see many good options.
If you go by car, you will experience a problem with parking, even though there is a lot of paid parking lots close by. For some reason I liked Dinant a bit more. It was giving more cozy impression to me.

It took almsot three hours to get here. Through the pouring rain. Along winding roads. And three hours back.

But it was definitely worth the drive. This medieval village here in this beautiful valley has it all. A compact town center, a great location by the river. Good food. And of course a castle: the chateau de Durbuy.

There is plenty of parking. A big space just across the river and a bigger lot (with shuttle service) a bit outside. But during Covid-19 it wasn't a problem to find a spot.

The small town center is easy to walk, maybe a bit slippery if it's rainy. Lots of historic buildings, wonderful architecture. The chateau isn't that huge, but looks amazing, sitting there right by the river.

Besides the nice streets and lanes it's also worth to walk along the river.

There are lots of shops. Souvenirs, arts & crafts. But nothing that amazed us. But the food on the other hand was pretty amazing. The best food during our stay in Belgium we've had here in Durbuy. At the "Le fou du Roy", just in the town center.

Even though a bit rainy, we enjoyed the village very much. A fantastic daytrip. And even maybe because of the rain and light fog it looked even more magical.

Really a highlight on that years Road Trip. Loved it.

Durbuy self-claims to be Belgium's smallest village. It is more cute than interesting to visit. If you happen to be near-by it is an excellent place to make an ice-cream stop on a hot day and enjoy a walk in the town which hopefully is not too crowded.

A nice small town in the southeast of Belgium. Most of the shops only served food outside (no dine-in) and the Chateau was closed because of Covid restrictions, but that's understandable.

Went to Topiary Park and the terrace was a good place to get some space (away from the crowd).

Very small, clean town with old well kept centre. Lots of great views. Full of places to eat and drink but rather short on shops. Still a great place to come for a walk and / or meal after activities in the region.

If you around it's worth visiting. Expensive food and little shops local ones. Many attractions around the town and great walk toward town. There is a river close by where u can enjoy peace and quiet

Beautiful place full of nice and cozy restaurants and nice Air B&B. Try to visit in a day where there are less tourist. Great all year around in the summer or snow! Taste their local beer.

Durbuy is a beautiful town well worth a short visit. The small allies are pretty, the cliffs around the town are impressive, and the lush vegetation is beautiful. We enjoyed very much walking around the town and having dinner in one of the many restaurants.
