The natural regions of Belgium
Sub-regions of the Condroz

The Condroz is a natural region in Belgium, located to the north-west of the Ardennes region, and is sometimes known as being even more beautiful than the Ardennes. Its unofficial capital is Ciney. It is a thinly populated, agricultural area with some forests, and named after the Condrusi, a Germanic tribe.

The Condroz consists of low hills of an average altitude of about 200 à 300 meters. It is mainly situated in the provinces of Liège and Namur and also in smaller parts of the provinces of Hainaut and Luxembourg. It is bordered in the north by the Meuse river and the Pays de Herve, in the east by the Ardennes, in the south by the Calestienne and in the west by the Thiérache and southern Hainaut near the Sambre river.
