The most beautiful hiking routes in East Belgium

Always at the waterside

Fast-flowing streams, rivers, lakes … on the trails in East Belgium you can almost always hear the gurgle or babble of water. During the snowmelt in springtime or on the shady shores of a lake in the summer. A little stream on your right, which you can clear with a hearty leap. Walking here makes you feel wonderfully light at heart. At any time of the year.

Panoramic and hill walks

Anyone wanting to ascend the highest point above sea level in Belgium or walk through the surrounding landscapes goes to East Belgium. Far horizons, or narrow ravines whose depths attract your gaze as if by magic. These hikes take you to the most beautiful lookout points in the country: on to the plateau of the High Fens, where the landscapes extend without hindrance, in the valleys of the Warche, Our, Göhl, Weser and Amel, where the visitor is rewarded for his effort with some fabulous panoramas.

Through the woods

Beyond the last house of any village in the Ardennes, the woods are waiting. They're ubiquitous in the landscape and in the tales of the region. All you need to do to experience this wilderness is prick up your ears, open your eyes and sharpen all your other senses. A stream in Ternell that jumps over every stone and boulder, beechwoods in Schönberg where the light slants down into the greenery below as it might through the windows of a cathedral. For the hiker, the forest is and continues to be a conspiratorial, sometimes enchanted place …
