Reinhardstein Castle

Built in 1354 by Renaud de Waimes on the foundations of Roman and Carolingian fortresses, Reinhardstein Castle dominated the Warche Valley for several hundred years before being gradually abandoned. Rebuilt by a rich and passionate teacher in 1965, it now contains rich collections of weapons and armour, tapestries and period furniture that make its visit a must. Many activities are organized throughout the year.

Bütgenbach Lake

As a true natural treasure for the region, Bütgenbach Lake is a real delight for those who enjoy the fresh and stimulating air of the Fagnes by walking nonchalantly along its shores. Water sports enthusiasts will not be disappointed since you can swim, canoe, and even windsurf. Fishing lovers will also be able to enjoy their favourite activity.

Spa-Francorchamps Circuit
