Welcome to St-Hubert
Dominated by the ancient basilica-church of a former abbey, the compact Ardennes town of St-Hubert is named for the patron saint of hunting. It plays on his image by hosting an early September festival full of red-coated huntsmen, dogs and curly horns. These hunting horns are blown again during a bizarre dog-blessing ceremony for St Hubert's Day. Despite the human predators, the surrounding beech and pine forests remain rich in deer and wild boar, while also making space for a fascinating open-air museum of historic rural buildings.
