COO – Cascades de Coo

A couple of kilometers from Stavelot you can admire the ‘famous’ Coo Waterfalls in the Amblève river, with their modest 13 meters still the highest in Belgium.The small waterfall already existed in the 15th century. In the 17th century, the prince-abbot of Stavelot ordered the local monks to build the large waterfall, most probably to protect the village of Petit-Coo downstream against flooding. Before that the river made almost a full circle (a meander) of almost a kilometer long.The waterfalls are a major tourist attraction, and a very popular stopping stage during trips to the Ardennes.
