In the eastern part of Belgium, right on the Arennes mountain range, lies Spa. The relatively small town of just over 11,000 inhabitants has long been known among the Belgian people with its abundance of mineral-rich water and hot springs.
It is also the city that has given its name to the today so popular health form Spa, "Health through water". In addition to this, the sports enthusiasts associate the city with racing and Formula 1.
Spa is a nice and promenade-friendly city for those who spend a weekend here. Here is some architecture to take a closer look at for those interested.
In the middle of the mountain by Annette et Lubin in Spa is the wellness center Thermes de Spa. Up to the Spa complex is a small funicular that gives you a nice overview of the entire city. It is not entirely illogical to offer relaxation in a fantastic environment that over the years has received fine reviews travelers from all corners of the world.
For those who are thinking about the nightlife, Casino de Spa is a well-visited place. Maybe the cards and dice are on your side just at your visit?
There is really only one sport associated with the city and that is Formula 1! Francorchamps de Spa, or simply the Spa course, has been on the F1 calendar since the start of the F1 competitions. Only twice have they not been involved as organizers and most recently it was a renovation of the track that meant that in 2006 races did not end.
The track is located about 10 km from the city center and is highly sought after as a visit by racing fans around the world. Here we find the famous Eau Rouge / Raidillon curve where the drivers, at high speed, make a left-right-left series uphill and then end up with a crest with no view to the next straight line.
Most people who visit Spa usually fly to the Belgian capital Brussels, where there are several direct departures daily from the major Nordic cities. From Brussels, the easiest way is to take the train to Spa via Verviers. If you are going out to the F1 line, you can change to a bus from Vervier's central station.
The local currency in Belgium is the Euro. The city's attractions are very popular and it may be wise to pre-book your planned visits to avoid it being full on the very day you plan to visit the place. During the F1 weekend, it is very difficult to get a hotel room in Spa.
Many people instead choose to live in Brussels and travel between the city and the race every day. For those who want to stay closer to the spa, there are some hotels in Liège that are located about 40 km from Spa.
