The small town of Alle, often called Alle-sur-Semois as to avoid confusion with other towns of the same name, holds one of the most beautiful Hillclimbs of Belgium. It starts out already with the paddock area. The teams can set up their service area anywhere in the village where the narrow streets and small houses give the appearance of a maze. The racetrack of the Hillclimb is no less interesting. It starts on the outskirts of the village still within urbanization, before a hairpin curve twists the track into the forest, where it finishes near the French border.
The area around Alle-sur-Semois is by many considered the most beautiful of Belgium. Responsible for this is the Semois River. Travelling west from the source in Arlon towards the end in the Meuse a straight line would have completed 70km. But the endless meandering of the river makes the journey no less than 200km. Near Alle-sur-Semois the river has cut a deep valley. The twists and turns in the Semois guarantee great panoramas over the towns and valleys below. Visitors of the Hillclimb who arrive from the northeast will pass a very obvious one near Frahan.
Most of the tourists center around Bouillon, the first major town east of Alle-sur-Semois. It is famous for its medieval castle high above a meander in the Semois. First mentioned in 988, a century later it was owned by Godfrey of Bouillon, the hero of the first crusade. It was later revamped by the French General and Engineer Seigneur de Vauban.
