Welcome to City of Bouillon

The city itself has certainly grown with the times. It is fully modern, with schools, churches, banks, restaurants and shopping. Visitors to the area will find plenty of hotel accommodations, as well as a town square where several festivals are held. The most popular attraction in the town is Bouillon Castle, which sits above the town center, surrounded by forest.
