One of the great benefits to being centrally located in Western Europe is how easy it is to visit many of Europe's marvelous cities – even if it it's just for a quick day trip. From our facility in Verviers, Belgium, we can travel by train to cities like London, Paris, Amsterdam, Cologne, and Luxembourg in just a few short hours.
Every semester, our students take the afternoon off to visit some remarkable cities and towns within a short distance from Verviers. Below are just a few of our favorites!
Maastricht, Netherlands – the birthplace of the European Union and the euro currency
Waterloo, Belgium – where Napoleon Bonaparte was defeated in his last battle on June 18, 1815
Cologne, Germany – the beautiful city on the Rhine, with a skyline dominated by the twin spires of the city's massive Dom (cathedral)
