Famed for its unique carnival, lively Malmédy makes a great base for visiting the Hautes Fagnes region, so long as you are driving. A former tanning centre, much of the city was tragically destroyed in a trio of WWII 'friendly fire' bombing raids in 1944. However, the centre has retained a core of historical buildings, notably a 1784 cathedral, from whose doorstep you can survey a grand series of spired, century-old mansions that reveal the remnants of a very wealthy past.
