Can 5 free days be called a ‘holiday’ ? If yes, even if the first and the last one are spent on the road ?
The answer is DEFINITELY 👌🏼. A break from life is always welcome.
Our mini-tour of North-Western Europe starts in Malmedy, Belgium.
Why here ?
Well, the city’s atmosphere for once. So old, so cozy, so chic.
Secondly, it’s all about history; Malmedy makes paper, leathers and furs for hundreds of years, pretty much for every single 1st world country.
They even put up a small cinema-room to explain the whole process. Attaboys 👌🏼.
Passing from papers to leathers, Malmundarium offers insights from the most rough to the most rafined form of leather and/or fur. All the colours and textures can be found here, from every possible origin. It’s like taking part in a ‘How it’s made?’ episode (awesome show).
Yep, that’s another mini-cinema for the ‘Leather & Fur’ section.
The Abbey of Malmedy is also an important historical part of the city. It’s unbelievable how well the antiquities below are preserved.
What I loved most about the museum was the upper floor; it hosted an exhibit of a local artist, but it felt insanely cozy. It was like a huge, fluffy living room with art all over.
The Malmundarium is an unknown spot of living history. Whether you are curious or rather looking for a nice small-town walk, this is the place to be.
