Our Area

Wilde narcissen langs de WarcheThe High Fens

The High Fens are a raised moor area unique for Western Europe. It is beautiful and special in every season, whether it is early spring with its wild daffodils, summer with a wide variety of wildflowers, including orchids, autumn with its beautiful colors of peat grass and trees, or of course winter, which often sees a generous amount of snow.  

Special animal and plant species can be found in the High Fens, for example there is a (small) population of grouse, unique in Western Europe, and there are wolves and wild cats. Our cottage is named after these wild cats.

Outdoor activities for everyone

From Wild Cat Cottage, there are endless walking possibilities, from an hour's walk to a full and challenging day walk. We have walking maps and descriptions that you can borrow and are happy to provide you with advice.

Vennbahn tussen Kalterherberg en Sourbrodt

Furthermore, it is a good environment for cycling, it is a paradise for mountain bikers, but because bicycle paths have been built on former railway routes, it is also an attractive cycling environment for less sporty cyclists.


You can cycle on the popular Vennbahn through the East Cantons and the Eifel to Luxembourg or to Monschau or Aachen, without traffic and without significant height differences. This cycle path, which leads through the most beautiful parts of Belgium, was declared the most beautiful long-distance cycling route in Europe in 2014 for a reason!  

Winter Sports

When there is snow, you have plenty of opportunities for winter sports here. You can go cross-country skiing everywhere in the Sourbrodt area and in Ovifat, less than 5 minutes by car from Wild Cat Cottage, you can also go alpine skiing and sledding. You can also rent snowshoes nearby and take a walk with them. This is fun to do and also recommended when the snow cover is so high that normal walking is not really possible.
