About Montagne de Bueren

Montagne de Bueren

The name refers to Vincent van Buren, one of the leaders of the battle. The stairs are therefore called the 600 escaliers. Legend has it that the Franchimontese would have climbed the mountain there, but this is historically incorrect. Every year on the first Saturday in October, the stairs are lit with 3000 candles on the occasion of the local neighborhood festivities.
