In Belgium the first snowflakes fell in the beginning of December, in one of the highest points of the country: the famous Baraque Michel (674 m). The snow first covered the village of Waimes, located near the German border. But last Thursday and Friday, it also fell in the Hautes Fagnes. Although not very thick (around 3 cm), the white snow layer made this location magical.
I went there on Friday morning, when the snow had just fallen. It was windy and really cold. The Hautes Fagnes or High Fens are one of the highest points, and the largest nature reserve park in Belgium, not far from the “Signal de Botrange” near Eupen. During the summer, this place is perfect to perform many leisure activities, such as walking. In the winter, if there is enough snow, it is also possible to ski. Here are some pictures from my visit last Friday. Wear a coat, have a hot coffee or tea and… enjoy!
