Visitors will gain a good first impression of the unique high moor landscape of the High Fens between the start of the route in Monschau and the finishing point in Waimes.
Distance 26.7 km
Crossing the impressive Reichenstein viaduct, you pass through Kalterherberg and the German exclave "Ruitzhof", back into Belgian territory. The one-of-a-kind heath heralds the High Fens. This fascinating high moor acting as a gigantic reservoir and, at the same time, the namesake of the Vennbahn, makes it necessary to build bridges over numerous streams and rivers. Past the old railway station building of Sourbrodt with a considerable number of well-preserved relics from railway history, the Vennbahn runs between the lakes of Robertville and Bütgenbach and finally ends in Waimes.
Visit of the "Signal de Botrange" and a lunchbreak at "Baraque Michel" or the "Peak Brewery".
