    Spa-commercial around 1900

    Spa was placed many times in large Jugendstile posters. This because this particular style was rather popular in the time that Spa had it's golden age (around the 1900 century-change). As I liked the affiches I placed a few on this page for other fans of this Jugendstile.

    Visit the sources outside of town

    Pouhon (source) de Geronstere has ironrich water

    It sounds strange to put this tip in the "off the beaten path"-section, but it seems that almost no-one is visiting anymore the public wells that are situated in the forests around Spa. Though one would say that here in Spa this is all what it is about, one will be surprised in how desolate these wells are. In present days people come for exclusive treatments and relaxated baths, as well as the tourism around the Casino and a ride on the train that shows tourists the highlights of old Spa.
    However, for who's intrested: at the tourist information they can give you a map with the route that takes you along four sources. So drive this quite difficult and winding road and don't forget to take enough bottles to store some of the healthy, but awfully tasting waters. Most of the sources give mineralrich cold waters. The sign of rost-redish stains in the waterbassin, prooves that almost all of them are rich in iron (ferrum).
