See without being seen; observe without disturbing, blend in with the surrounding forest… You can do this thanks to the three observation platforms that blend in discreetly with the landscape. Each one of them allows you to view Nassogne from a particular angle: the birds and pond in Bilaude, large animals and the fen in Priesse and the ‘paysage aux Huttes’ (landscape dotted with huts).
Priesse observation tower
This 5m high (15 ft) observation tower, and allows a 180° open view of a superb panorama. It’s the ideal spot for observing red deer and roe deer, but also the birdlife that is typical to open landscapes. The platform can welcome up to 20 persons and is accessible all year round, except during the deer’s mating season when it is closed from 17.00 to 19.00. We don’t advise access to children below the age of 4.
