Pull on your hiking boots and head out to conquer the many walks that this pretty municipality has to offer, home of the famous Signal de Botrange, Belgium's highest point. And the charming town of Malmedy is only fifteen minutes away.
If you enjoy walking in the countryside, you’ll love Waimes, the ideal place to discover the Belgian Ardennes along its network of signposted paths. As well as its idyllic setting, this municipality in the East Cantons is home to the Signal de Botrange, Belgium's highest point, standing tall at 694 metres. Succumb to the magic and observe the fauna and flora that evolve with the seasons in the Hautes-Fagnes Nature Park. In winter, a thick blanket of snow transforms Waimes into the most magical setting. If you enjoy skiing, race down the slopes and warm up with a glass of mulled wine afterwards.
Lots to do in the local area
Less than fifteen minutes from Waimes, discover the pretty town of Malmedy with its museums, quaint streets and cathedral. To relax, there is nothing quite like the activities on offer at Robertville Lake, from fishing and mini-golf to canoeing, kayaking, cycling or swimming. Looking for something a little different? Dive into the Middle Ages at one of Reinhardstein Castle’s medieval festivals, visit Coo waterfall, the PlopsaCoo amusement park or the legendary Spa-Francorchamps racetrack. There’s literally something for everyone!
