Ideas for holidays, weekends and trips in Maubeuge and its surroundings
Maubeuge has a long history and rich heritage, offering many sites and activities for your stay. Less than 2km from the hotel, the Maubeuge Zoo is a great place to start. The 17, 000 acre property is home to more than 500 animals representing 55 different species, including giraffes, panthers, kangaroos, zebras, elephants, hippopotamuses, and a rare white tiger. The Arsenal is one of the town's most famous buildings. Built in the 17th century, this formidable structure was used to store the army's weaponry, which was manufactured in Maubeuge's Maubeuge's Arms Factory. The Black Sisters Chapel is another historic site worth visiting. The Chapel was part of a 15th-century convent and was built in baroque style, with red brick and blue stone. Other noteworthy sites include the Saint Peter/Saint Paul Church(also known as the Saint Aldegonde Church), the Church of Our Lady of Assumption Day, the “Tablette” Windmill and Manège Theatre. Just at the doorstep of Maubeuge sits the Avesnois Regional Nature Park. It covers an area of 308, 800 acres, including many small towns and a population of about 130, 000 people. Visitors can enjoy hiking, biking, camping and other outdoor activities. The Park is also home to several animals, such as bats, white-throated dippers, owls and wildcats. So come and discover them whilst staying at the Campanile Maubeuge.
