On the edge of Aachen Forest, between Köpfchen and Lichtenbusch, on the border between Germany and Belgium, lies the source of the Göhl.
Soon, numerous small watercourses join forces and form the fast-flowing Göhl, which winds its way for some 56 km through the land of the three borders and the Heuvelland. The Göhl valley route Via Gulia, approximately 53 kilometres in length, can be walked from the source to the Maas, and anyone who does that will get to know a border region which has a rich history, culture and diversity to offer.
Museum Vieille Montagne - In the Museum Vieille Montagne, on two floors, the regional history of zinc ore (calamine) mining is presented by means of audio guides, charts and exhibited originals, as are the political, social, economic and ecological impacts of that mining on the region.
