Comblain-au-Pont consists of two parts. Grotte de l'Abîme is a natural limestone cave, which is visited with a helmet. Definitly an attraction for children. The second part is a former quarry, called La Carrière Souterraine. This is a rather unusual underground limestone quarry, the only one of this kind in Belgium. The history of this quarry is explained by "animated scenes".
Interesting sights nearby are a 10km geological path explaining the geology, but also the flora, of the region of Comblain-au-Pont. The Ourthe-Amblève Council Museum shows the evolution of nature and man: regional archaeology of paleolithic, mesolithic, neolithic and metal ages, and from the Roman period to the Middle-Ages. And there is a bat center, where bats are protected and researched.
