In the heart of the High Fens Nature Park, Signal de Botrange is the highest point in Benelux and the starting point of many hikes and cross-country ski trails

At 694m, this is the highest point in Belgium – and Benelux! In 1923 a 6-meter staircase to nowhere was built to reach the 700m mark 😆

This is the starting point of many hiking trails from 3km to 27km. You can check them all at the official site here:

It is also the starting point of cross-country ski trails from 4km to 20km. You can rent cross-skiing gear and sleds there too. You can check the cross-country ski trails map here:

There is also a café/restaurant right next to the staircase:

There is free outdoor parking, but you need to go early to secure a place
