If you and your group would like to make the most out of your trip to the Museum of the Celts by organising something else to do, there are a number of options to choose from.
Please contact the venue to book.
Tour of a Celtic fortification
Celtic fortifications are some of the rare archaeological Iron Age sites that can still be looked at. As well as the buried remains, the shapes of which stand out in the landscape, you can also see replicas of some parts of the ramparts.
A number of fortifications are accessible:
- The “Trînchi” (Cugnon/Bertrix; recommended as it is the closest – 22 km from the Museum),
You can only visit the site as part of a guided tour with one of our colleagues.
- The “Tranchée des Portes” (Étalle – 45 km from the Museum), the largest in the south of the country,
- “Montauban” (Virton – 45 km from the Museum),
- The “Cheslé” in Bérismenil (La Roche-en-Ardenne – 50 km from the Museum).
This has been named a “Major Walloon Celtic Site” and is the best preserved in Belgium.
A signposted 5 km walk, starting at the Saint Roch Maboge Chapel, passes nearby the fortification. A walking map is available to buy from the region’s tourist information offices.
A guide from the Museum may accompany you on your tours of a fortified site. Depending on the length of your tour, the guide will explain the Celts’ ingenuity when it came to war craft by looking at the topography and the replica of the rampart.
€3 per person. Travel must be arranged and organised by the group. You must also give the guide a lift (from and back to the Museum).
Groups can be between 10 and 60 people. The tour, including travel, lasts at least three hours (this can be adapted).
