Malmedy is in about 20 km from the spa. The city has beautiful old buildings, including a cathedral built as an abbey church in 1775. In Cavens House, a former orphanage, there is a paper and carnival museum. On the hill of Livremont north of the city is the Cloister. Here is a walking tour of about 90 minutes. Along the way you will come to a viewpoint from which you can view Malmedy from the top.
