There are a number of smaller accommodation options close to the circuit in the beautiful town of Spa but these sell-out quickly. There is a wider range of accommodation available in Liege, around 40km from the track. Liege is a university city to the north-west of Spa circuit, and boasts many historical and modern sights. With Liege Airport nearby, it can be the perfect base for your Formula 1 weekend.
Maastricht, a small city in Holland, is also a short 55km from the track. This picturesque Dutch city has stunning architecture and breath-taking views over the Meuse river.
Similarly, the German city of Aachen is just 53km from Spa-Francorchamps. The town favours classic German Renaissance architecture and borders both Holland and Belgium.
All of these towns are a reasonable distance from the rural setting of the circuit and so we would advise that make plans for your travel to and from the circuit ahead of the race weekend.

Set slightly further out from the track, the Young Village camping area is for those camping with tents only and is aimed at young fans who want to get into the party atmosphere.

Due to the beautiful, rural setting of this unique track, there are also campsites available in many of the nearby towns.
