EXPLORE NEW HORIZONS
Stavelot, is the meeting point of a small village brimming with monastic history, the incredible folklore of the Blancs-Moussis and an exceptional natural environment. It also has an artisanal and industrial past and personalities such as Guillaume Apollinaire and Victor Hugo have stayed here. Also, it was here that the mad and destructive dash of the German army (Von Rundstedt Offensive) took place in December 1944 leaving victims and desolation in its wake.
Today, between the excitement of its Francorchamps race track (the best in the world as far as drivers are concerned) and the Coo waterfall, Stavelot has developed its passion for art and culture within the prestigious setting of its Abbey.
What is surprising when you come to Stavelot is that you can pass through the town centre with its rich history in a few strides and quickly be immersed in wild and authentic nature. The region offers incredible panoramas of the spectacular landscapes of the Amblève valley as well as spots where you run on tiptoe hoping to encounter a hare or a deer.
