The unique heath landscape announces the Hohes Venn-Eifel Nature Park. As a gigantic water reservoir, this fascinating moorland area ensures that there are numerous streams and rivers to bridge. Behind the excellently preserved station building of Sourbrodt we leave the Vennbahn. A short time later, the Rur shore cycle path leads us back to Monschau. The splashing Rur accompanies us on our way past Reichenstein Monastery and Norbertus Chapel until we finally reach the centre of the former cloth making town of Monschau with its splendidly preserved idyll of half-timbered houses. Here we end the day with a leisurely stroll through the old town or in one of the cosy cafes before returning to the starting point.
Highlights along the route:
- Reichenstein Viaduct
- Kalterherberg-Sourbrodt trolley route
- Sourbrodt station building
- High Fagnes

- Reichenstein Monastery
- Historical Old Town Monschau with Red House
