Like Alsace, the Maas Valley is a borderland region that sits in the center of European history. The region has its own cultural traditions and a long history of independence. This guide will take you through some of the most beautiful and historically significant destinations in Northern Europe.
The highlights of this trip will certainly be the Warfusee and Jehay Palaces, both of which are museums and both have regular opening hours. At certain points along the river you will also get sweeping views of the River, though not as impressive as elsewhere.
This hike takes you on a tour of the most spectacular part of the Maas Valley. You will see some of the most iconic imagery of the valley, focused on Walzin Castle and the Palace of Freyr.
Belgian waffles have a highly regional character. One of the more famous waffle recipes is that of the Liege Waffle, from the city of Liege. Made with a brioche dough infused with sugar crystals, it has a rich flavor and sugary crunch.
Boulets à la Liégeoise is one of the national dishes of Belgium and can be found in restaurants all over the country. Though the recipe is for meatballs, the heart of the recipe is the sweet-savory sauce made from a regional fruit syrup.
