Geology site description:

The famous caves of Han in the Belgian Ardennes were formed by dissolution of limestone by the river Lesse. The cave has beautiful stalagmites and stalactites. Even though the cave is very touristic, it is still a good place to see actual geological processes.

The river Lesse flows
underground over a distance of 1,100 meters through the cave. Only a small portion of the cave is are open to the public. There is a walking route through the cave.
