From Hockai, you head towards the Hautes-Fagnes - Eiffel nature park to reach the infamous Cross of the Betrothed. The Cross of the Betrothed is a monument on the plateau of the High Fens in Belgium, not far from the Baraque Michel. It is located on the ancient Gallic road "La Vecquée" and on the former border between Belgium and Prussia. The cross was inaugurated in its present state on Sunday 20 September 1931 in memory of two young engaged couples who died in a snowstorm on 22 January 1871. On the route, you can also see the former border marker 151 which marked the boundary between Prussia and Belgium.
Head for the summits of Stavelot towards the Croix Collin, a cross erected in memory of a certain Jean Collin who, according to legend, did not pray for the repose of his father's soul at mass. For the rest of his life, he met with nothing but misfortune...
Walk from the Esplanade de l'Abbaye towards the heights following the small stream Le Magiru. A difficult climb along the stream. You then arrive at the top of the mythical Stockeu cycling hill to discover the stele dedicated to the cycling champion Eddy Merckx.
A walk that will take you to discover the main square of the city "Place Saint-Remacle" and then the wooded heights of Stavelot, passing by the "Chapel Notre-Dame des Pauvres" and the famous Devil's Stone. Even if you will sometimes be confronted with steep slopes, this beautiful walk will give you a lot of pleasure by its frequent changes of scenery.
