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.

The Premier League started on 12/9 and initially the stands will be closed. The clubs' arenas are approved for reduced capacity and when fans are welcome in the stands, it is anything from 20% -40% as it looks right now.
How does this affect you as a traveler?
You have probably read in the media that the places that are released will only go to members of the club. This is to some extent true, but we are proud to announce that GO Sport Travel, through long and very good relations with the clubs, will keep our agreements in line with the reduced capacity the clubs will soon present.
With the help of GO Sport Travel AB, you can continue to be one of those who sit in the stands and experience the Premier League live, already in October!
It is planned that each visitor needs to take certain wise measures, such as wearing a mouth guard, etc. In addition, each visitor's name will be printed on the ticket, and subsequent identity checks will take place upon arrival at the arena area.
In short, each visitor must have their ticket registered by the club. The registration is of course handled by GO Sport Travel on behalf of the visitor.
The clubs are very happy to have a high level of security in which visitors they have in place, both for themselves and the visitors. The clubs also hope that the number of less desirable ticket players will decrease. We encourage you to be observant when listening to other actors.
There may be ticket / tour operators who will convey that the above restrictions will not be required, but this is not correct information.
We look forward to announcing soon when we, together with the clubs, open the sale for the upcoming Premier League season.
