Place Saint-Lambert is the heart of Lüttich. Nowadays it is a wide open space in modern design. This square is about the only area in the city centre which has brand new pavement. Works were still in progress in summer 2012. (For reasons explained on the intro page, the topic of pavement has a special meaning to me. It was on this new pavement...more

This town square area has a couple of restaurants and bars that are quite quaint and a nice stop for an Eupener bier. One bar on the corner (to the left 130 meters facing the church) was especially friendly. Eupen itself has a special feel as part of Belgium and speaking nearly only German. A friend and I used to frequent this square.more

Here we are in The Belgian Ardennes and though Belgians all are supposed to speak at least two languages (and most do) one could be surprised by the stubornous of some Wallonians that do not want to speak any Dutch. So, then I really do effort to try my best French (and believe me ... this language is quite rosty in me) and yet again it's not good...more
Walk around the village and watch the different buildingstyles of the average village in The Ardennes. See what material they used for their homes and especially the everywhere present "Lei"-stone. The roofs, but also even sides of the houses are covered with this black, splintering stone that large parts of the Ardennes offer in huge amounts. Also...more
Easiest way to reach remouchamps is by own car. You just take the hit off the freeway from Liege to Luxembourg called "Aywaille / Sougne-Remouchamps". The village is however connected to the Wallonian busnetwork and in Aywaille there's also a little station. If you really want to find an original way of entering Remouchamps ... then try to rent a...more
They have good food on a Portugese style including beef, fish & shellfish. They say in the tradition and charm of Portugal in a spectacular natural setting. The setting very nice though, I have never been to Portugal to confirm it. Open from 10h to 15h and from 18h to 23h, in the week to 24h.
Open on (statutory) holidays. A nice place to visit with a friend for a quiet relaxing afternoon or evening.
Favorite Dish: The grilled beef is my favorite. And they have a good selection of Belgian beers.Related to:

Just outside the town you have access to the paddock of the famous Spa-Francorchamps Formula 1 circuit, the most beautiful circuit in the world according to most of the F1 pilots.This famous competition has almost disappeared because of some weird anti-tobacco law and stupid ecologist politicians. At the end, it is finally back in the F1...more

The photo is fairly dark as the chapel uses mainly natural lighting. It is very simple with wooden pews off to one side, and altar in the front, and flags on the wall. The entrance is inscribed: IN PROUD REMEMBRANCE OF THE ACHIEVEMENTS OF HER SONS AND IN HUMBLE TRIBUTE TO THEIR SACRIFICES THIS MEMORIAL HAS BEEN ERECTED BY THE UNITED STATES OF...more

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.

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.

Shaped or hollow-charge explosives were discovered by an American, Charles Munroe, in 1888. Improved upon by German scientist, Egon Neumann, in 1910, the hohlladungwaffe was held by the German Army as a close secret. It was Hitler, himself, who came up with the idea for a glider attack on the fort. Paratroopers trained for the operation from early...more
Bloc 01 was sited 100 meters outside the main fort, but it was the most important observation post of all since it overlooked the Albert Canal, the Lanaye Locks and the Meuse River all the way across the Dutch countryside to the German border. This position was never attacked by the Germans. In what was but another error on the part of the Belgian...more
After visiting the interior of the fort – maybe taking the extended guided tour to the gun cupolas – it is time to turn your attention outside. A trail will take you to the top of the fort where you can see the gun casements and cupolas from the German perspective. The damage done by the German raiders is still evident on many of the observer...more
