The Cave of Han

Experience the mysteries of the subterranean world

A century-old tram will take you to the entrance of one of the most beautiful caves in Europe. With entirely new lighting the galleries are revealed as more and more impressive, more and more enchanting. From the gigantic Hall of the Dome to the Hall of the Draperies with its magic reflections, you will experience the most unforgettable trip in time.

The Cave of Han, which is exceptional in the beauty of its concretions and the immensity of its galleries, sculpted by the River Lesse which passes through it from one side to the other, has received almost 30 million visitors in over 250 years. It richly deserves its three stars in the Michelin Green Guide.

New LED lighting in the cave!

Among its many challenges, the domain of  the caves of Han wished to bring more value to their caves, through new lighting which is more respectful for the environment.

Work continues in the cave. By 2016, more than half of the cave will unveil the LED light.

A more thoughtful and more eco-friendly device.

This new lighting brings out the natural color of the cave and concretions reveal their beauty. LED consumes, approximately, ten times less than conventional incandescent lamps. In addition, these bulbs have a significantly greater longevity and do not heat up. This last point may limit the development of mosses and algae inside the cave.

The challenge is huge but exciting, because the first feedback of the guides and visitors is very positive!
