Durbuy, Belgium

united_kingdomDurbuy is a francophone Belgian city,  considered to be “the smallest town in the world” (title given in the 14th century, which nowadays is not justified anymore, because Durbuy’s population grew and today has around 11 000 inhabitants). There are narrow cobbled streets, flowers at windows, romantic restaurants, a castle and a hill that can be climbed for a panoramic view.

  1. I wonder what made them claim the world’s smallest town title. That castle does look quite big for a small town like Durbuy. However it looks like I can spend a few days just walking around and lazying down at this town. Beautiful!

    • Hi Bama!
      It was named city in the 14th century and it remained with this title ever since (even though nowadays is not justified anymore, as the population grew).

  2. That’s too bad that you can’t visit the castle, but I understand. If I could have a castle overlooking a European city and didn’t have to let tourists in, I would too. 🙂
