The surrounding area

Baugnez is just a few minutes’ drive from Malmedy. The tranquil location beyond the main road, in a land of tall forests and rolling meadows, offers ideal conditions for a relaxing stay. Our guests always find a wide range of things to do, both onsite and in the surrounding area, with fast and easy access to places of interest just a short drive away.

Other attractions include walking and hiking, cycling in the woods or local village, and direct access to various winter-sports facilities.

Local sights

Malmedy

In addition to a wide range of culinary delights (offered by the area’s cafés, restaurants and traditional snack outlets), the town offers access to all manner of leisure activities, such as tennis, squash and ten-pin bowling, plus an open-air swimming pool, children’s playground and crazy-golf course. Cultural life is also amply catered for, with a wide-ranging programme of (open-air) concerts, museum events and exhibitions.

Francorchamps

The Formula One circuit barely needs any further introduction, and neither does the annual circus associated with it, but there are in fact motorsport events on virtually every weekend of the year, including 24-hour races, Porsche Days, Bikers’ Classics and Spa Italia events, to name just a few.

Guided tours and try-outs take place on days when no major events are being held.

Stavelot

Stavelot, right next to Spa, is inextricably linked to the history of motor racing at Spa-Francorchamps. It is therefore fitting that it should be the site, at Abbaye de Stavelot, of the circuit’s own museum. The former abbey has been completely restored and converted into a modern museum, complete with event-hosting facilities. There are regular temporary exhibitions, in addition to the permanent displays on the history of the region and the abbey.

The historic town of Stavelot comes to the fore culturally at carnival time, with the procession of the bizarrely-disguised Blanc Moussis (some 200 local men clad in white and masked with long red noses, who parade through town throwing confetti and beating bystanders with dried pigs’ bladders), to mark the fourth Sunday of Lent.

The High Fen district

The High Fen district is an absolute “must-see” attraction for anyone visiting the region. This area of high marshland has a special attraction all of its own, and is also an ideal base for visiting the Botrange High Fen Nature Park in the Eifel region, and its visitors’ centre.

The dam lakes of Robertville and Bütgenbach

The dam lakes of Robertville and Bütgenbach are both just a few miles away. They each have a bathing beach (with lifeguard in attendance in season), plus pedalo rental and, in Bütgenbach, sailing facilities and the Worriken Leisure Centre.

RAVeL's tracks

Unused railway lines or towing paths have always been of interest for creating Cycling path moreover in places with hilly terrain like in East Belgium cantons. Advantages are obvious indeed. Where you may expect never ending ups and downs, former railway lines are offering a unique smooth alternative. You may use tunnels and viaducts to cross hills and valleys with incredible sceneries without spending drops of sweat as slopes are negligible (below 3% on average). This is the main characteristic of RAVeLs while you'll be furrowing far from any traffic into large and undiscovered landscapes or even will stop at small cafe terraces alongside your journey to take a healthy and well deserved break.
