The Hautes Fagnes National Park
Located in the east of Belgium, Hautes Fagnes National Park is part of the German-Belgian National Park Hautes Fagnes-Eifel. His name can be translated as high swamps. It is a swampy plateau with the highest mountains in Belgium, Signal de Botrange (694 m).
This wonderful place, unspoiled by human activity, is an oasis for many species of animals. These areas are inhabited by, among others, wildcats, deer, beavers, lynxes, storks, eagle owls, as well as representatives of hundreds of reptile and amphibian species.
Haute Fagnes, which was declared a nature reserve in 1957, is a highland area in the province of Liege, near the German border, between the Ardennes and the Eifel highlands. The largest nature reserve in Belgium covers an area of 45 square kilometers.
Kilometers of paths, often in the form of wooden platforms, lead to areas that are difficult to access. You can walk them, surrounded by nature, for hours. It is an oasis for many species of animals and plants, so it's really worth coming here. This place is devoid of tourist noise.
Near the park there are two interesting cities. On the German side, small, though charming Monschau, and on the Belgian Eupen. It may not be a town with many monuments, but it is worth visiting, because it is the main city of the German-speaking region of Belgium.
