Let Ath surprise you !

Ath, well known for its « Ducasse » celebration on the 4th Sunday in August, is also a town with a lot of character in the heart of a green region. There is always something to do in Ath !

Welcome to the Ath Tourist Office Website. We hope that you will find this first contact with the town of giants useful as a presentation of the continually renewed tourist and cultural scene. Regardless of your interests it will certainly provide a gateway to something that will interest you. As well as words you will find pictures that speak for themselves. From the virtual to the real is only one step ! Ath, the town of giants.

Laurent Dubuisson, Director of the Ath Tourist Office
