Discover The Hautes Fagnes plateau Belgium

Peat bogs, fields of herbs and spruces spread out of sight to the east of Liège, on the Hautes Fagnes plateau. A discovery path offers an outing. You walk on duckboards and discover the fauna and flora. In the centre of the plateau, go and see the highest point of Belgium, the Signal de Botrange, at 2,276 feet. It has a magnificent view from the top of its tower.

    Although the bogs contain a lot of water, some areas dry up so much in summer that access to them is restricted due to the risk of fire.
