Huy: the wall, a summit in itself!
AS one of the main tourist centres in the Meuse basin, Huy boasts many natural treasures and can be proud of its rich heritage. In the town centre, colourful terraces, eye-catching shops, shady parks and lively pedestrian streets are an invitation to enjoy a taste of the town’s warmth.
Festive, cultural and sporty, Huy boasts a remarkable calendar of events. The Condroz-Huy Rally, the fair on 15th August, many festivals and exhibitions, as well as the end of year festivities focused around the open air ice rink at Grand-Place punctuate the year, just like the Flèche Wallonne, whose finishing line set up residence here in 1984; to the utmost delight of thousands of cycling enthusiasts, but to the dread of the pack, condemned to suffer in order to tame the 19% gradient of the famous Mur de Huy (wall of Huy) climb.
