    From 1815 to 1920 the border with Belgium was further north at Baraque Michel. At that time the Botrange belonged to Prussia and the Rhine Province. On Prussian maps, their height is given as 692 m [2], 2 m less than the Belgian height. This results from the fact that the Prussians derived their height data from the Amsterdam level, Belgium, however, from a level at Ostend. At that time, Baraque Michel was the highest point in Belgium.
    This point was therefore added so that Belgium also Prussian cards appears. From here, hiking trails lead to the Hohes Venn nature park.

    The Signal de Botrange is an ideal starting point for hikes into the Hohe Venn due to its spacious parking lot. Great view of the surrounding countryside inclusive!
