Monschau is a very nice German village at the border of Belgium, with beautiful timbered houses, a glass factory with demonstration of the glass making process (vases, lamps, etc.), romantic old streets, nice landscapes,...
If we're lucky, we might see some snowy sceneries like the one below:
WHERE DO WE MEET AND HOW DO WE GET THERE?
We meet at Starbucks, inside Brussels Central Station where we will take the train at 12:00 to Eupen.
We arrive in Eupen at 13:43, where we will take bus number 385 at 14:01 to Monschau Schmiede.
The bus will arrive at Monschau Smiede station at 14:25.
In case people want to go by car, we can meet at 14:30 at Laufenstraße 60, Monschau (Germany), which is a kind of roundabout at the entrance of Monschau.
To return: the last bus is at 17:30 at Monschau Smiede, arriving in Eupen Bahnhof at 17:55. The train for Bruxelles is at 18:17.
This Meetup is free of charge, except your tickets for train (ca. 12 EUR for a return ticket with the Christmas deal) and bus.
