Our holiday residence near Spa in the Ardennes as group accommodation.
Verviers is a city with 62.000 inhabitants and is located in the valley between the Ardennes and Hautes Fagnes. It used to be the centre of the linen and wool industry in Europe. Just like the industry in Twente, this ceased to be in the 70s. There are still plenty of old buildings from the earlier days of glory in the city. Sadly enough, many were in decline, but everything is now being renovated. Unemployment was an issue after the industry quit, but many people are finding their places again.
Verviers is now a regional capital on the rise, thanks to an amount of EU-subsidies. A lot of attention is given to culture, the Opera especially is famous for its performances, organised in cooperation with the Opera in Liège (Opera Wallonia). Verviers is located very centrally: A 25 minute drive from Maastricht, Liège and Aken, and 15 minutes away from Spa.

Delicious food & drink and more...
Verviers is a city with many nationalities, which makes it culinary very diverse. The Italian, Greek and Afrikan cuisine is well represented, among other, as well as the high quality Belgium cuisine. There are many restaurants and bistros in the city centre and along the new part of the quay on the Vesdre.
There are also a variety of museums (for example the linen museum) in Verviers.

It is also fun to explore Liège, where the Rue Roture is a well-loved "dining street". If you cross the bridge in the direction of Place Lamber, you will immediately find a cosy area with dozens of bistros. Musical bistro "Les Olivettes" is open Thursday to Sunday, where local residents and all other visitors can perform their own music.
The highest point of the Hautes Fagnes, the Baraque Michel, is 10km away. There is a lot of snow in winter, and it is an amazing place for cross-country skiing. You can also go on beautiful hikes in both the Ardenness and the Hautes Fagnes (Grands Routes Randommé). Wild water rafting is just half an hour away, and it is also fun to visit the caves of Francorchamps. Formula 1 races also take place there, at the end of August.

You need to take into account that the Hautes Fagnes is a protected natural landscape, and unleashed dogs are thus not allowed everywhere. You can go for long walks with your dog in the unofficial hiking areas (such as the woods around Stavelot and around the resevoir La Gileppe). Do not forget to take your map with you, as you can easily get lost!
