Eupen
The Essential
With its parliament and pretty government building, Eupen is the peaceful capital of Belgium's German-speaking community. Located in the Vesdre valley, its development and industrial vocation came about further to the arrival of wealthy wool manufacturers from Ghent in the 18C, attracted by its waters. Note its fine patrician houses that date from this period, as well as St Nicholas' Church, with its light-hearted green onion domes and exuberant Baroque altars.
