How lovely that you’ve booked a break in the Voer-region. A beautiful area to find a little peace and quiet, go walking or cycling, or enjoy the local cuisine.
Below we have a number of recommendations for fun activities, fine restaurants and sights.
Lots of fun!
bread & pastry
Equilibrium bakery in ’s-Gravenvoeren not only has tasty bread and delicious pastries and cakes, but they also offer breakfast baskets. Only 6 km from Mille Fleurs and a 10-minute drive.
Lunch and Diner
At 15 min. walking or 2 min. by car, in the rural hostellerie 'De Cantarel' you are always welcome. Whether you stop by for an extensive dinner or for a cup of coffee with homemade apple pie.
For your evening meal, we would recommend 'Hoeve de Bies' which has recently been taken over by two young people who used to work in the Michelin star restaurant Beluga Maastricht. From our location, it’s just half an hour’s walk to 'Hoeve de Bies'.
Traditional syrup making
You will find the centuries-old farm of the Wiertz family bordering the Medieval Commandery. As well as keeping dairy cows, the farm also makes traditional syrup from Voeren ('Voerstroop'). A genuine artisan product, of which the recipe has been passed down from generation to generation. Throughout the year, the farm shop is open almost every day from 11 am to 5 pm (except for public holidays). Besides their syrup, you can also buy other regional produce here, such as apple juice, beer and honey. The syrup distillery is open for visitors (from the end of September) so that you can see the syrup production process with your own eyes and, of course, sample it.
Don't forget to visit Aubel's regional market as well. Every Tuesday and Sunday from 8 am to 2 pm at only 4.5 km from Mille Fleurs.
The Sunday morning is the best time to discover the variety of local products in a charming atmosphere.
Market Aubel, Place Nicolaï, 4880 Aubel
