FRENCH-SPEAKING HILLY UPLANDS

The Walloon southern region of Belgium, Wallonia is the French-speaking half of the country. Forested hills, plateaus and gorges of the Ardennes make up the much landscape, bordered by France to the southwest, Luxembourg to the southeast, and Germany to the east. Its beautiful landscapes and hidden gems pre-dating its industrial heritage should not be overlooked.
