This ancient site was, in turn, a Neolithic dwelling, Roman oppidum and house of the Frankish kings. Set overlooking the town and river Ourthe, in deepest countryside, it has earned La Roche the fitting nickname of "Jewel of the Ardennes". Falconry shows and medieval entertainment in summer. "Ghost Shows" on summer evenings. Historical fair on the 1st weekend of August.

    The Phantom of La Roche Show
    The Phantom of La Roche Show

    Every evening, the ghost of Berthe - daughter of a 10th-century Count of La Roche - wanders the walls of La Roche-en-Ardenne castle from 12 July to 23 August for this 2014 edition.

    Berthe laments her tragic destiny: believing herself to have been betrayed by her fiancé, she sold her soul to the devil on the condition that she could get revenge by condemning them both to death...

    Only visible from the town - Quartier du Faubourg.

    The ghost doesn't appear in rain or strong winds.
