The furtile healthy peat soil
Peat has a very high organic matter-level and is therefor extremely furtile. The black soils of the "Hautes Fagnes - Hoge Venen" are also used in the resorts like Spa, as a packing to improve the health of skin and innerbody. In the natural park one can see this soil on some spots along the boardwalk-paths that are going through the swamps. Now, don't hop in here as it will disturb nature ... just go to Spa and book a treatement, that also includes the fresh mineralwaters and some other forms of relaxation (see my Spa-page).
