The Labyrinth of Durbuy (Le Labyrinthe de Barvaux-sur-Ourthe) is an entertaining place for both children and adults. You may get lost, walk through 6 km (3.7 mi) of alleys and then, finally, find the right path in an 11-hectare (27-acre) maze. Every year, since 1997, the labyrinth decorations have been dedicated to a specific theme such as the story of Peter Pan, the Little Prince, etc. Actors dressed in accordance to the theme give daily shows in the maze.

Aside from the main labyrinth, there are eight other activity zones within the maze. Thus, there is the labyrinth of doors, the dark labyrinth, an area for barefoot walking, an area that should be passed with the eyes covered, a biodiversity labyrinth, and a small maze for the youngest visitors. You may even visit an organic vegetable garden or collect pumpkins.

The park would be interesting for families as the majority of activities are aimed at children. Every year, around 70,000 people visit the labyrinth in the summer season. It is fairly easy to find as it is located in Durbuy, a small town in Wallonia. It takes around 1 hour to get there from Brussels and less than 30-minutes by car from Liege and Namur.
