Gaume

Gaume

Gaume is a region in the far south of Belgium. Situated at a lower altitude than the Ardennes, it is delineated by borders with France, Luxembourg and the Belgian Ardennes.

Temperatures in this region are often 1°C to 3°C higher than in other parts of Belgium due to a microclimate.

Gaume is a destination for tourism in Belgium.

The Lorrain language, a langue d'oïl distinct from the Walloon language, is a minority language in Gaume where it is known as Gaumais. Although it is in decline, several local authors are trying to revive usage. Lorrain is recognised as a regional language of Wallonia.
