Turning point for my road trip today was the little French city of Givet. Givet is a town and commune in the Ardennes département of France just on the other side of the Belgian border. The city lies on the river Meuse which I have been following the whole day
The biggest site in this city the fort of Charlemont which Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor built. Later on, another building was added to the fort, the Caserne Rougé, longest barracks of France at that time, named after Pierre François, Marquis de Rougé, general of the French armies k.a. 1761.
I found the city just like many of the small town that you pass when you are driving of the main roads.
On another little sqare along the river I found the city attraction on such a rainful day ��" the fritte shop. It seemed like nobody wanted to cook this afternoon, the queue was long and never getting smaller. Insperied by the queue I decided to taste their “frittes”. They were ok ��" but not a ringer.
