Nevertheless the ancient tradition as a marketplace has been preserved so that Saint Vith offers to its guests a large number of attractive shopping facilities in its city centre where a lot of terraces invite for staying. Moreover different market events attract thousands of visitors; the highlight of these events is the traditional Katharinenmarkt in November.
The big recreational value of the natural landscape offers a high quality of life to the locals and the visitors of the municipality. A lot of kilometres of footpaths and cycle tracks are available and are being developed.
