This forest hike, far from civilization, takes you to the hidden valley of the Olefbach. The Rocherath memorial is a reminder of the Ardennes offensive in December 1944. You will no longer encounter smugglers in this remote area, but may be you can spot wildlife.
A very varied but also tiring walk between two rivers, the Ninglinspo and the Chefna. A regular contact with rocks and water characterizes this circuit. The route along the Ninglinspo, over rocks and bridges, is a real adventure. There is constant change of side, so that one always gets new impressions of the landscape formed by erosion. Numerous small waterfalls throw themselves in small reservoirs that sometimes carry names like the 'Bath of Diana'. At the secluded hamlet Chefna / Ville-au-Bois you can discover highland cattle and Ardennes draft horses along the way with a bit of luck. From Chefna / Ville-au-Bois it goes along the Chefna-brook back to the valley of the Amblève. Shortly before the Chefna enters the Amblève, you arrive at the village of Quarreux. The road then passes by the 'Fonds de Quarreux', a particularly wild part of the Ambève. The bed of the river here is dotted with large and erratic blocks of quartzite where the water breaks and offers a beautiful spectacle.
This varied walk goes through the Wolfsbuch, a beautiful pine forest, to the banks of the Amblève where gold miners used to dream of wealth. Wolves and prospectors are no longer there, but nature is all the more.
A walk from the old station of Sourbrodt to the source area of the Rhur, which looks black like all peat rivers. Through the bogs of Sourbrodt you walk through the forest of Grand Troupa to the Croix Des Russes, an Orthodox cross in memory of Russian prisoners who tried to survive here in a German labor camp during the Second World War. Then you walk along the western edge of the peat bog to a memorial with the Inflected Propeller of an allied aircraft shot down here during World War II.
In the narrow valley of the Bayehon you walk to the waterfall of the Bayehon that falls nine meters down. Then it continues on a beautiful forest path in the direction of the Fagne de Setay, a low marsh on the high plateau.
This walk goes along the edge of the Fagne Wallone to Noir Flohay, the famous skeleton trees. This is probably the highest point in Belgium. Then you walk further along the peat river the Helle to the southern edge of the peat bogs. The landscape consists of raised bogs, heathlands, sparse grasslands and forests.
A varied and well-signposted circuit with some landscape highlights and beautiful panoramas. Before or after the walk, the visit to the Abbey of Stavelot is recommended. You will find the museum of the Principality of Stavelot-Malmedy, the museum of the circuit of Spa-Francorchamps and the Guillaume Apollinaire museum. The archaeological remains of the abbey church of the 11th century were uncovered in the courtyard and made accessible to everyone. From the Abbey the Trouts route leads to the Amblève, which rises on the High Fens and which, like the Salm and the Ourthe, as a tributary of the Warche has influenced the history of Wallonia. Above the village of Warche and its old farms rises the impressive Rocher de Warche. This rock towers high above the water and offers an unparalleled view of the valley of the Amblève.
A very varied circuit through beautiful mixed forests, that follows the course of the streams to the heath of the moors of Malchamps. You can admire the entire landscape around Spa at that location. After a long walk on the heath, take small roads and paths to return to your starting point. The course will show you three famous sources: Barisart, Géronstère and Pia. The Géronstère source, discovered in 1599, was visited by many famous people, including Peter the Great.
A beautiful circuit through woods and meadows with some panoramic views of the hills of the Ardennes and the beautiful valley of the Amblève. Wood and schist characterize the sites in this region. The hamlet of Borgoumont, and especially the old village of Moulin du Ruy, impresses because of their many typical buildings. La Gleize was hard hit during the Ardennes Offensive in December 1944. The Tiger tank and the 'December 1944' museum remind of this dark time. The village church from the 12th century and medieval woodwork are worth a visit.
This walk on the border between Belgium and Germany goes through the Ruhr Valley with a view of the historic Vennbahn. On the way you pass the former monastery Reichenstein and the Kreuz im Venn.
In the beginning of the walk, attention is drawn to beautiful old farms and their thick walls that are typical of this region with a rough climate. After a few minutes you reach the Statte, a pristine little river. The trail leads over numerous small bridges and stone paths to the 'Rocher de Bilisse', a nearly 50 meters high rock wall in the middle of the forest. The slightly further waterfall 'Cascade des Nûtons' is especially impressive after heavy rains.
Circuit with numerous views of untouched landscapes! After each turn on this short course you will be surprised by beautiful postcard landscapes. Shortly after departure you will discover a breathtaking panoramic view of the Reinhardstein Castle also known as Burg Metternich, which rises high above the valley of the Warche.
This adventurous course starts at the Baraque Michel and offers a nice overview of the scenic diversity of the High Fens. In addition to the typical peat plains, mysterious oak forests and peaceful river valleys also require discovery.
From the farm Libert the road quickly disappears in the forest in the direction of the stream Trôs-Marets. On the completely barren hill you have an unobstructed view of the area and on the hamlet of Mont. You will soon return to the semi-darkness of the pine trees. The small wooden bridge spans the foamy stream and offers an unobstructed view of the water that contains peat and iron. The deciduous forest reaches to the water: a perfect spot for photos. The road rises sharply in the upstream direction and offers a view down on the entire landscape. In the forest you will find a charming shelter at the spot 'Moûpa' where you can stop for a while. Along the Targnon stream the road descends into the valley, passing a small heathland and a wildlife park before returning to the farm Libert.
The Cistercian abbey Notre Dame du Val-Dieu in the heart of the Land of Herve is the starting point of this trail that combines two regional walks: the 'Balade de Saint-Jean-Sart' and the 'Balade du Chemin du Diable'. The Abbey was founded in 1216 by Cistercians in the valley of the Berwinne, which used to have the name Valley of the Devil. To ward off fate, the monks baptized the valley Val-Dieu, the valley of God.
