Grottes de Han
-Huge domain with caves, wildlife park, playground, play structures along the path in the forest; a great experience for kids
-The playground is big, there is also a toddler section
-The caves are closed due to the pandemic (good excuse to come back!)
-There are many play structures along the walk in the forest, it’s amazing for kids!
-There are wolves, bears, deer and many more animals
-You can access the wildlife park in two ways; A. doing a safari or B. walking
-A. If you choose to do the safari, the litlle buses leave from near the playground and the entrance of the domain and they will drive you around the domain
-B1. If you choose to walk around the domain, you can reach the entrance of the wildlife park by the touristic train that takes you there (it starts near the playground and the entrance of the domain) or you can walk there
-Β2. Once you reach the entrance of the wildlife park, you can then walk 3km and then take the safari little buses for 3 more km or walk the full 6km. If you want to do the 6km, you need to be at the half-way point by 15.30 latest, otherwise you will not be allowed to continue on feet and you will have to get on the safari little buses.
-The first 3km walk is stroller friendly, then you can get on the safari little buses for the remaining 3km (there is extra space to carry strollers on the little buses). There is also space to leave the stroller at the entrance of the domain, in case you want to walk the whole route. The last 3km are not stroller friendly – or as the guard said ‘it’s complicated’ 🙂
-You can buy sandwiches/soup/waffles/ice cream and coffee/hot chocolate right next to the entrance of the domain or at Tivoli, the cafe which is a bit before the midpoint (they have the same menu).
-There are many picnic areas (see last pics for the map of the domain)
-There are toilets (see last pics for the map of the domain)
-The whole domain can get a bit muddy depending on the weather, you might want to consider appropriate shoes
-Not wheelchair friendly, but they organize adapted visits
-No dogs allowed
-No bikes allowed
-Cost: adult EUR23, 4-11 years old EUR17 (only the wildlife park is open for now)
-Yearly pass: adult EUR55, 4-11 years old EUR 41
-You can buy your tickets here
-You can check here for the opening hours and days:
-About 1 hour 15 minutes from Schuman, Brussels (2.5 hours with train and bus)
