When my partner advised me about the visit to this place on 31st December, I was not very certain as was relatively a cold day.. We decided to go as our tickets were expiring on the very same day. When we arrived there, everything was frozen yet magnificent.. It was it was a life time experience, it was breath taking,... More

The cave is a must when young to the Ardennes. Situated in a small and nice village your trip starts with a trainride trough the nice countryside to the entrance of cave. They offer the tour in Dutch and French language. We follow the Dutch tour guide because she translated also into English for us and some others! Great service!!!!!!... More

Lovely caves, well maintained. Despite the tour offered in Dutch or French, guide accommodated us with English too. Train ride to caves on a very cold day was not the best idea.

We happened to walk behind a school group and one of the teachers spoke English so we were given a translation of the caves. Even if you do not speak French these underground caves are quite something to behold.

Beautiful caves. The insignificance of us humans is really felt here because of the immense period of time it took for these caves to form. You can find fossils in the stone form when there was a sea there. The tour guide was not really enthousiastic but also there weren't many questions from the group. So he told his facts... More

Wow, that's the world :D First we visited park with animals, it's so nice to see them in their natural habitat, without cages. Very relaxing. Then we went to the cage and I was surprised how big and beautiful it is. Good place to visit. Village is also very charming, with old pretty buildings and small restaurant. Highly recommend.

Very large cave with huge atriums. Walk is about 2 km. Not much too see though and on downside there is no information in English at all. So if you don't know French or Dutch.. your loss. Very disappointing.

I was a bit reluctant to visit the animal park because most are quite sad, but at Han most of the animals have quite a lot of space (the bear and lynx are a bit cramped). Some are rescues who were either orphaned or injured and unable to survive in the wild. We walked the 5.5 km route and enjoyed... More

I've visited maybe 4 or 5 caves prior to visiting Han's caves and was definitely impressed by the size of Han's, you walk a long way inside and some rooms are huge!! But the calcium formations I've seen much prettier in other caves, also in Belgium (near Malmedy I believe). But Han is definitely worth a visit!
