The region around Malmedy and Robertville has become a household name for many because of its beautiful landscape, which offers numerous hiking opportunities in addition to rest and relaxation. Anyone who has been to East Belgium before knows that it is not an exaggeration to call this area a hiking paradise. More than 1000 km of hiking trails have been mapped out by the local tourist offices.
Numerous hiking trails depart from the campsite, including to the castle of Reinhardstein, Lake Robertville, Champagne, le barrage de Robertville, Waimes, etc. Good for days of hiking fun! Upon arrival at our campsite, you will receive a number of beautiful walking routes.
