I will be spending a long weekend with friends in a rented house in Aywaille and we are wondering what to do in the area and beyond. Ideally, on one of the days we would like to discover the area we are in and on the other day we would like to go on a worthwhile excursion somewhere within an hour (or so) by car from where we are staying (perhaps on the German side).
We would greatly appreciate your suggestions on things to do and places to visit on these two days!
Thanks in advance :-)
can you book transport / taxis to Spa from Banneux easily ?
My girlfriend and I are about to book a long term rental just outside of Jalhay. We'd like to know how difficult it is to live in the area on foot, either by walking trails to different villages to get groceries, or riding a bicycle on the trails. The roadways look narrow with high speed cars, even though we've seen cyclists on them. We'd like to lead a slow, pedestrian, country life. No cars.
Also, suggestions on where to buy groceries around Surister/Royompre/Jalhay/Polleur/Chernaux would be much appreciated.
Mon amie et moi sommes sur le point de réserver une location à long terme à l'extérieur de Jalhay. Nous aimerions savoir combien il est difficile de vivre dans la région à pied, soit par des sentiers pédestres de différents villages pour faire des courses, ou à vélo sur les sentiers. Les routes semblent étroite avec des voitures à grande vitesse, même si nous avons vu les cyclistes sur eux. Nous aimerions mener une, piéton, la vie est lente pays. Pas de voitures.
En outre, des suggestions sur les endroits où acheter de la nourriture autour de Surister / Royompré / Jalhay / Polleur / Chernaux serait très apprécié.
I have a few questions.
1) Is the tour guided?
2) Can a person who does not speak French enjoy the visit?
3)Would a nine year old enjoy this?
4) Is the Fort de Loncin a good place to visit?
Getting from Brussels to Raeren by train or bus

Hi there I would like to know how to get go to Banneux from Brussels by PUBLIC TRANSPORT. Many thanks for your help. Betsy

I'll be coming into Liege from Luxembourg by train in the morning, and leaving in the morning of the next day. I have a few questions:
1) Is there anything anyone can recommend doing in this period?
2) Also, could you give me precise instructions on how to get to the attractions or sights that you suggest, from the Liege train station? Which is a good area to stay?
3) Finally, can anyone recommend a good place to buy Belgium dark chocolates or any other Belgium-made snacks/foodstuffs in Liege, near the attractions you recommend, or near the train station?
Is there a night bus from Liege - Gullemens to Maastricht, i have a tight schedule and i may miss the last train from Liege to Maastricht.

A friend and I will be in Belgium whilst the Grand Prix is on (well we extended our holiday to make sure).
Now, I have no interest what-so-ever in Grand Prix so am looking to do something else.
We can't decide whether to drive there or train, not sure where we'll be coming from, but hope you guys could help advise.
Is it easy to travel to the race track by public transport? My friend has a ticket for Sunday 29th Aug. The official website only mentions travel by car and all the others I can find are only selling tickets or serious F1 info.
And any suggestions on what I can do whilst he's watching the race? I'm thinking visit Liege but am open to suggestions. I like beer, modern art and design, second hand sales, architecture, taking photographs.
Did anyone go to the Belgian Grand Prix this year? Can you provide tips on the best viewing spots? public transportation to spa from paris? any race related activity in the local area?
i will be in Liege next saturday and i wanna eat the best fries in Liege :)
Where can i find them ?
Thanks a lot in advance
I would like to meet other expats in Liège. I'm French and Canadian, actually, my mother tongue is French, but I like speaking English (I speak German too).
If you're francophone, you're more than welcome too!
I just miss the international touch and I am slowly creating a list of contact. Soon enough, I would like to invite the group to meet for a drink in Liège.
Please have a look at my blog and feel free to send me your feedback (or tips!)

Hello! For our trip to the Spa-Francorchamps Belgian Grand Prix, my husband and I are looking for accommodation (hotel, bed and breakfast, room in private house, vacation house?) for Thursday night 27 August to Monday 31 August, preferably close to Verviers. We hope to keep the price under200 USD/night. We are not having luck in finding available rooms for this weekend, even now several months before the race! Yikes! Your suggestions are appreciated. If you have done this trip to the Grand Prix in the past, your comments on transportation options would be very welcome. We are hoping to travel only by train and bus but may consider renting a car if necessary or suggested.

I am coming over last minute for the game and as the hotels in Liege were all booked up I have booked a hotel in Ebn Email La Vallee Du Geer. I am not sure how far it is from Liege and how easy or expensive it will be to get a taxi back there after the game. It may even be easier to go for a post match drink nearer to the hotel. Appreciate some feedback thanks. We are coming over in a car so may drive into liege or near the ground and leave the car there and pick it up the next day when we drive back
I'm coming to Liege for the Everton game on 2 October.
Can anybody advise of good places for a few beers with the locals please?
Most Everton fans are likely to head for the central areas - any English pubs / Irish bars.
I'd prefer somewhere a little more obscure to mingle with locals.
Any suggestions gratefully accepted.

My in-laws came to America from Belgium 75 years ago. They were french speakers. I have been looking for a translation of a fun word they would routinely use. Gous Gous. It would be used for the desert of a meal, sweets and candies, or by me as the good things of life.
Any background on this term? I have never heard it used outside of my wife's family. Joe
My elderly parents are travelling by train from Cologne, Germany to England (Eurostar from Brussells). However they have to change trains at LIEGE (from Archen) for their onward journey to Brussels but only have 9 minutes to do so. Can anyone tell me the size of this railway station as they are very worried about changing platforms in such a short time.

I am attempting to locate a cafe near Malmédy where my grandfather stayed in December of 1944 as a US soldier. It is not the cafe associated with the massacre which was set on fire at that time. I have collected several clues from my grandfather about the cafe and its location but, so far, I have not been able to determine its name or actual location.
I would be extremely grateful if someone who is familiar with the area could help me attempt to identify it. My goal is to visit the location someday. I recognize that the building may no longer be standing or is very likely now being used for another purpose.
If anyone would like to assist, please contact me by sending an e-mail through this site to user jj1807. Thanks!
