Amblève Things to Do
Here one is far away from traffic noise, from the hustle in large cities...
The vastness of the hilly landscape, the silence of the forests, the beautiful scenery, the tinkling and rustling of the many brooks, the friendliness of the inhabitants, the neat flower decorated houses, all work together for one's wellness.
1. Hiking: from the Ommerwald to Wolfsbusch one finds a marvelous hiking area: wide open, varied, with beautiful hiking paths. The Ommerwald belongs to the nature reserve Hohes Venn Eifel; the Wolfsbusch rises from the valley of the Amel (370 m) toward its highest point at 595 m.
On the hiking map (available at the Tourist office) one finds 45 hikes (3 km to
18 km), all of them well signed.
2. Biking: the hilly area offers many roads across the fields and the forests. Even along major roads through the hamlets biking is not dangerous because one only is acquainted with local traffic. The Tourist office offers a map with 600 km mountain bike trails.
3. Swimming: the small pools at Camping "Oos Heem" in Deidenberg, as well as at Camping Freddy Johanns in Eibertingen may be used for free. The tropical swimming pool of Sun Parks in Vielsalm is only 20-30 min away.
4. Sunbating and swimming at a lake beach: 15 min. by car to the lake of Robertville or to the lake of Bütgenbach.
5. Water sports like surfing, sailing or boating are also possible at these lakes.
6. Fishing: inform at the Tourist office for possibilities and conditions.
7. Fitness: at Bambusch between Amel and Schoppen as well as in Born one finds fitness trails.
8 . Ski hiking has become very popular in East Belgium. The ski-runs can be reached very easy.
9. Touring by car is a good alternative when the weather isn't too good. 13 mapped daytrips through Eifel and Ardennes as well as 3 signed trails guide one through idyllic localities.
10. Playgrounds are available at Amel, Born, Deidenberg, Heppenbach, Schoppen, Meyerode and Medell.Related to:
