Where to eat and playgrounds

La Maison du Parc-Botrange

There is a restaurant and a nice playground, also a small museum with temporary nature-themed exhibitions. Until August 2022 there is an expo on wolves. It is kids-oriented and pretty small, perfect for a short break from spending the day in snow!
