Between the High Fens and Bütgenbach Lake some impressive biological diversity unfolds in Weywertz.
The morning dew covers flowers and berries – up here at almost 550 metres, you can get a better feel for the chill of morning. The descent to the Warche opens your view out on to a beautiful, flat pasture landscape.
A little beach at the edge of the river invites you to stop and take a short break. In this silence it seems that the echoes of the ceasefire can still be heard: the point at which you cross the Warche here is also the entrance to the Elsenborn military base, the scene of such dire combat during the Ardennes Offensive in 1944.
The US Army succeeded in stopping the German attack. Green hedges beautify the trail, which winds its way along the ridge. At the end of our hike we reach the Warche one last time, as it ripples along between tall grasses and hay meadows.
Herba Sana – the health garden: here, you can immerse yourself in a herb garden with over 120 medicinal herbs and 450 information panels.
