The folklore of Malmedy

The city of Malmedy: internationally known for its folklore, and a full calendar of events. A giant omelette (10.000 eggs), carnival (the “Cwarmê”), the flower market, the christmas market…this city is not sleeping!

Another tradition in Malmedy are the local products: Bellevaux beer, local cheese, the “baisers” of Malmedy , Ardennes sausage,…impossible to resist.

The brasserie Bellevaux is the ideal place for the production process of the Bellevaux beer to discover. Throughout the year, it is possible to visit to commit, but it is especially pleasant to do this in the summer. On the terrace is a nice place to stay while enjoying one of the beers and a bite to eat.
