The Vennbahn bike path, was internationally awarded on several occasions and is one of the longest rail bike paths in Europe, leading through three countries: Germany, Belgium, and Luxembourg. The path stretches from Aachen, straight through East Belgium, to Troisvierges, offering 125 km of fascinating landscapes, border country atmosphere, history, and stories of the Vennbahn.
The Vennbahn route begins in the former imperial city of Aachen. The busy urban scene around Rothe Erde station with its traffic and industry soon gives way to the idyllic gardens and allotments of suburbia. The former Abbey town of Kornelimunster welcomes visitors into its peaceful heart, which has hardly changed since the Middle Ages. In Walheim the station infrastructure is still intact, complete with rolling stock: note the old diesel locomotives and shunting engines. The route continues on to the old station in Raeren, through a landscape of forest and meadow.
Visit of the old town of Aachen and the Museum of Pottery in Raeren.
