Discover East Belgium

Situated at the intersection between the Eifel and the Ardennes, the region of East Belgium boasts great variety and charm in terms of its landscape. Anyone who loves unspoilt nature will definitely find what they are looking for in the High Fens Nature Reserve, one of the last highland moors in Europe.

Many of the springs that fill the surrounding dams have their source here. Hiking trails and boardwalks lead ramblers and cyclists through wide open spaces with impressive panoramic views. The 694-metre-high Signal de Botrange is the highest elevation in Belgium. The countryside around Eupen and the Göhl valley is characterised by gently undulating hills with an abundance of hedges and vast meadows. It is a region of manor houses, castles and stately homes. The gate to the High Fens is formed by the Hertogen forest and the Weser dam near Eupen.

Further to the south, the countryside changes. Belgium’s largest woodland area starts in the Ardennes. Here you can reach the dams of the Warche valley of Robertville and Bütgenbach as well as the Amel valley shaped by trout farming. The Our river flows towards the German border near Reuland Castle. Over the centuries, the region around Reuland has been transformed into a breath-taking landscape of hills and dales by the boundary river, affording expansive views in all directions.
