The main axis of the network of border routes unites the natural contrasts and historical diversity of the region.
Distance 27.2 km
Raeren, Itertal, Lichtenbusch, Köpfchen, Dreiländerpunkt (the point where three borders converge), Vaals, Schneeberg, Orsbach: these are the milestones that are touched by the main axis of the border route network. This way, one single hiking trail combines many of the natural, landscape and cultural-historical sights that make the border region so attractive. The route runs through charming stream valleys and meadow landscapes, over the crests of hills and through woodland areas with quite different characters.
Raeren Castle is a moated castle from the 14th century. In the historical walls there is a pottery museum that reflects the history of stoneware from Raeren. The permanent exhibition comprises 2000 ceramics.
