After the tragic incident in Bütgenbach that made headlines this week, this wonderful region in Belgium comes into negative view. That’s a bad thing because Bütgenbach is a beautiful location in his own country! We also went there last week (a few days before the accident) and that looked like this!
Bütgenbach is located in the province of Liège in German-speaking Belgium. It’s a beautiful place near Malmedy. For us, from the province of Antwerp, this was a two-hour drive. So you’ll find a lot of green and nice cities nearby. For us, this is a win-win situation. For hikers or cyclists who also like local shops and good food, this is paradise. More information about walking and cycling routes can be found on the website of Bütgenbach.
For those looking for peace and quiet,this is the ideal place to enjoy. It is a -still relatively unknown- place within Belgium that has so much to offer. You even feel like you’re here in another country! This is of course partly due to the various other languages they speak here, mainly German and French. And the views you have here are certainly not the everyday Belgian views we know. The trouble to discover!
Stay in Bütgenbach
Bütgenbach has several nice hotels,but we were really impressed with Beverly Weekend with a view of the lake. With a jacuzzi in the room and an indoor pool with sauna and infrared cabin, this complex really unwinds you. There is also a large children’s play paradise and a fitness, pool and ping pong table. So you can definitely stay here for a few days and go on holiday in your own country!
