Visitor Centre Ambiorix shoe factory.

Coming soon

In 1895 Louis Steyns started a shoe factory in Verviers and in 1907 he moved it to Tongeren to become Belgium's leading shoe manufacturer.

To this day, Ambiorix still produces almost 100,000 pairs of shoes every year in its factory in Tongeren.

Since 2007, Belgium's only shoe factory is owned by the Vavedin family. In the visitor's centre, you will discover the history of the company and how the shoes are still made with the greatest craftsmanship today.
