Spa

Spa is a Belgian town, located in the Province of Liège, and is the town where the word spa comes from. Family-friendly places like Les Thermes de Spa and Charmille of Haut-Maret will thrill your kids. Explore Spa's surroundings by going to Musee en plein air et Tour St Martin (in Comblain-au-Pont) and Blegny-Mine (in Blegny). There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Domaine de Berinzenne, get engrossed in the history at Baugnez 44 Historical Centre, examine the collection at Musee de la Lessive, and explore the fascinating underground world of Grottes de Remouchamps.

The Ardennes travel guide

One of Europe's last truly unspoiled natural areas, the Ardennes offers visitors lush greenery. A region of wooded hills and low mountains, this verdant corner of southeastern Belgium continues to welcome mostly Flemish and Dutch cyclists and motorists, drawn largely by the land's gentle topography. A lack of tourist crowds means that you can take the time to explore the region's caves, forested hills, rich river valleys, and small villages at your own unhurried pace. Made for active holidays, the region lets you split your time between fishing, canoeing, kayaking, rock climbing, and hiking. If you prefer a calmer vacation, head to Spa--the original spa town.
