RIVEO and its collection


Where the rivers tell their story ! Open the door to RIVEO and enter the fabulous world of the river ! A surprising world of diversity, natural riches, a uuniverse which we sometimes ponder, regularly encounter, yet often don't really understand. Cross the threshold: nature's treasures are just waiting to be discovered. At RIVEO, aquariums and themed exhibitions are an invitation for you to constantly learn more and, above all, to have fun ! The visit begins with "Par Toutéhtys !", an exhibition where you can discover 5 great rivers of the planet. In a semi-underground building, branches of the river have been rebuilt and aquariums present fresh-water fish in a unique and surprising showcase. You will meet the tench and learn why it's nicknamed the doctor fish, the pike with a more sinister nickname - the river shart, and even the smallest of them all, the stickleback, wich builds a nest for its young. It's a funny-looking bird ! All in all, there are around twenty fish and shellfish wearing the Ardennes coulours. You finish with a little stroll around the splendid gardens or perhaps a game of mini golf ! Monastic, Moorish gardens, a labyrinth, renaissance... even contemporary... the gardens invite you for an enjoyable and relaxing interlude at the very heart of Hotton. How about mini golf ? There's an 18 hole that we are told is exceptional ! Shall we go ?
