Thuin – The Hanging Gardens

This is what Mathieu Anciaux, a poet from Thuin, once wrote about the “Jardins Suspendus”:

cascading down the slopes, the terraced gardens set out their abundant plants, fruits and flowers between the river and the sky.

And it really is not an exaggeration… The Hanging Gardens can be found on the southern flanks of the Thuis hill and can be accessed on foot. There is a narrow path with explanatory signs about the huge variety of plants, flowers, fruit trees and … vines! And you can visit it for free!

Stunning. Picturesque. Magnificent. I think the pictures speak for themselves. We highly recommend you to visit this place!

      It certainly was! It looked beautiful on television, but seeing it in reality was indeed very cool!
