Verviers is the largest town lying along the Vesdre River in between the German Border to the east and the city of Liege to the west, where the Vesdre joins the Meuse River. It is a young town by Belgian standards, existing as a formal entity only since 1651. The Museum of Fine Art and Ceramics, with porcelain, paintings, sculptures, and lace, is the town's most well-known attraction. The E42 roadway passes through Verviers from north to south.
Ensival, Heusy, Lambermont, Petit-Rechain, Polleur, and Stembert are boroughs within the municipal district of Verviers.
