The Semois Springs

The Semois Springs

The Semois springs are located on Rue Sonnetty. They were built where two basins, dating from the 17th and 18th centuries, were discovered. These structures were part of nearby tanneries.

Research and inauguration

The Arlon Tourist Office led the way with the search to locate the springs. Its research began between 1967 and 1970. Just 2 years later, in 1972, the springs were inaugurated. To mark the occasion, a copy of a fragment of a Roman monument has been installed here, providing a link with Arlon’s Gallo-Roman past and reminding visitors of the importance of water since Antiquity.
