Viewpoint on the Eau rouge motorway bridge

From here you have a view of the Eau Rouge valley and the motorway bridge that crosses it. The first houses of the village Bernister (Malmedy) can be seen on the other side of the bridge.

"L'Eau rouge" in French means the Red Water. This name comes from the red colour of the stream some places. The cause is the iron-laden spring water that gushes out in the area.

The stream also crosses and gives its name to the most famous bend of the Spa-Francorchamps circuit: the "Raidillon de l'Eau rouge". The circuit is hidden by the surrounding hills and vegetation.

Cockémont Cross

Iron cross restored by the Syndicat d'initiative de Francorchamps in 2018.
It marks the location of the place called "Cokémont", also written "Cokaimont" or "Coquaimont"...

The origins of this name are rather unclear, but if we refer to the possible etymology of another nearby place: "Cockaifagne", "Cocké" would be a deformation of the word "Clokè" which means "bell" in Walloon (source: www.sparealites.be/cokaifagne).
