The High Fens
The Nature Park High Fens – Eifel undoubtedly comprises one of Belgium’s most beautiful regions. Located in the East of the country, it is part of the cross-border German-Belgian Nature Park. Its strengths lie in its landscape diversity, the quality of its environment and its nature and in its natural and cultural history.
Besides its incontestable show-piece, the High Fens national nature reserve, the Nature Park comes up with permanently changing sceneries: forest areas, valleys and watercourses, meadows, tall hedges, ridges and picturesque villages. The Nature Park covers 12 municipalities. As the Nature Park’s borders were drawn on the basis of natural and landscape elements, irrespective of administrative borders, no one of these municipalities is completely located within the nature Park.
The 12 municipalities are (from the North to the South): Raeren, Eupen, Baelen, Jalhay, Stavelot, Malmedy, Waimes, Bütgenbach, Büllingen, Amel, Sankt Vith and Burg-Reuland.
