Welcome to Aubel

Image Aubel 1

Aubel, 4268 inhabitants. Close to the three borders, Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany, the Pays d'Aubel is located in the centre of the triangle Liege - Maastricht - Aachen, in the heart of the Euregio. Our territory of 1,883 ha is situated at an altitude of 235 m on a plateau overlooking two valleys, the Berwinne and the Bel. The agricultural land forms this wonderful landscape of hedged farmland where many paths invite you to take a walk through the fields via numerous gates, wickets or other stiles. In Aubel, you will find a number of stately homes that bear witness to its rich past. The venerable Val-Dieu Abbey and its majestic site are its pride and joy. Aubel has always been the economic centre of the Pays de Herve, thanks in particular to its famous grain market. Today, the twice-weekly market offers you: meats, sausages, syrups, ciders, beers... Nothing is missing in Aubel, where the many traders and restaurateurs will help you discover the richness and diversity of its local products. The Aubelois are good people and many festivities regularly enliven our local life.
