City break in Spa. Active leisure ideas for Spa - attractions, recreation and nightlife

spa Spa is a small town. Its name has become a common noun for a subspecies of resorts. People come here for the opportunity to combine leisure and recovery. They bathe in the mineral waters, explore the local ski slopes or just walk through the mountains. The town became popular among the European aristocracy in the 18th century. Although it is worth noting that it was the Romans who first drew attention to the local healing waters. The resort became more popular with time. Today it is an ideal place for those who prefer a relaxing holiday.
Historical hotels where you can make your recreation unforgettable are a special appeal of the resort. Travelers who are not indifferent to the culture of the last centuries should certainly … Open
Thermes de Spa is the center of attraction for tourists of all ages and nationalities in the town. Do not think that any water entertainment is always associated with slides, jumps, and splashes. Even if you had such associations when thinking about a vacation in the Water Park before, a visit to Thermes de Spa will definitely change everything forever. But it is worth noting - this is a very popular place. There are really a lot of people in any weather on the weekend here. So if you would like more privacy, you should think about coming to Thermes de Spa on the morning of weekdays.
The whole complex can accommodate up to 35 thousand people. So don't be surprised by the two really giant swimming pools. You can swim under the roof or move to the open part. It should be noted that the water in Thermes de Spa is very warm. It seems even hot for many visitors. This allows you to swim in the open air even in winter. However, it won't be easy to freshen up quickly in the summer. It is worth noting that the pools are not just a large bathroom with water. There are many underwater currents, massages, waterfalls and other similar entertainment. This creates opportunities for a comfortable stay and complete relaxation. Copyright

Sauna, Hammam, Jacuzzi and several small pools with hot and cold water are located on the second floor of this large bath. Interesting is the fact that there are two sections – for dressed and undressed visitors. The bath attendant regularly splashes aromatic liquids on the stones, creating steam in the section for undressed visitors. You can enjoy a relaxing massage and several other rather pleasant treatments for an extra fee. If you do not want to leave Thermes de Spa for lunch, you can order a meal at the local restaurant. You can get into it even before buying tickets. It is worth noting that the service is not very fast here.
Spa Just walking around the town would be a good idea. You can do it on your own or with a local guide. Group tours for everyone are also regularly held in Spa. You can get acquainted with the rich town history as part of these excursions. In addition, pouhons are located throughout the settlement. These are small sources of healing water. An interesting fact is that Pouhon Pierre LeGrand, which is one of the most famous pouhon, is named after Peter the Great. He visited the town back in 1717. Many sources are named after rulers and politicians like Pouhon Prince-de-Condé.

After enjoying the water treatments, you can stroll along the Parc de Sept Heures. The name of this place can be translated as “Seven o’clock Park”. This name was fixed because of the popularity of this area for evening walks among the aristocrats in the 18th century. This place is incredibly beautiful. It is made in the best traditions of public parks of the 1750s. Paths bordered by trees, richly decorated fountains, calm surface of the lake – all this contributes to complete relaxation and harmony with nature.
If after relaxing in the local healing waters you want risk and excitement, you can visit the Casino de Spa. It is not the largest gambling establishment in Belgium. But this is one of the few establishments located in an incredibly beautiful old building. There are a lot of slot machines here. But there are only five tables for card games and roulette. If you want to visit a massage, make facial cleaning or an unusual manicure, you can go to V'Spa. You can go skiing and snowboarding near the resort in the winter. The tracks are quite simple. They do not differ in great variety. But they are perfect for relaxed skiing.
Spa is not the place where it will be interesting for children who are accustomed to modern gadgets and entertainment. It is a balneological resort, oriented to adults for many centuries. … Open
It is much more interesting to explore the slopes near Spa on your own or on a rented in the town mountain bike. There are many routes of varying degrees of complexity. The simplest of them will suit just fans to walk or ride in beautiful places. But the most difficult will be a challenge even for experienced athletes. Those who love beautiful views and are fond of photography should climb the tower in the Park Domaine de Berinzenne. The route RAVeL Spa-Francorchamps-Stavelot is very beautiful. You should also visit the lake shores of Lac de Warfaaz. Motorsport fans should go to the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. Formula 1 race is held here.
