Stavelot Abbey, a magical destination boasting the "5 Suns" quality label! No less than 3 museums await you in the setting of Belgium's oldest monastic foundation.
  • Principality of Stavelot-Malmedy History Museum. For over a thousand years, the principality has exerted its influence over a territory extending well beyond Belgium's borders. The Principality of Stavelot-Malmedy History Museum offers a modern and fun-filled insight into the Old Régime and includes sounds and images, various objects and works of art, orchestrated using the latest multimedia techniques, together with the "Espace Wibald", portraying a 12th-century Empire priest.
  • Spa-Francorchamps Race Track Museum. Set inside the abbey's vaulted cellars, this museum tells the story of the "world's finest race track". An exhibition of exceptional vehicles, previously-unseen videos and unusual objects allow visitors to relive the passion of racing, from the pioneers to today's drivers. You're bound to take yourself for a Fangio, Senna or Schumacher after a virtual lap of the Ardennes track!
  • Guillaume Apollinaire Museum. This museum, with its hushed atmosphere, evokes the poet's stay in the Stavelot region and plunges visitors into the world of the author of the "Chanson du Mal-Aimé". The itinerary introduces visitors to the work of one of the last century's most outstanding figures, as seen through Apollinaire's writings and the eyes of Picasso, Chagall and Cocteau.

    Festival - Une chanson peut en cacher une autre
    Festival - Une chanson peut en cacher une autre

    This festival lets you discover various French-speaking artists of all generations. In Stavelot from 13 to 26/10/13.
    In times of crisis, faced with the legitimate fear of the near future, we have quickly decided to give up what doesn't seem essential.
    People need to eat and we can't live without a roof above our heads and a minimum of comfort.
    But we also need to hope and love. And culture is not a luxury: we cannot get out of this crisis without culture, without exchange of values around today's works.
    And music is a part of that.
    This 12 edition offers:
    13 October at 5pm Ici Baba (Samir Barris) (BEL) "Chat qui se cache"
    15 October at 9:30am and 11am and 16 October at 9:30am et 11am Yvette Berger (BEL) "Regarde"
