With the former railway station in Raeren as your starting point, you cycle via Roetgen, repeatedly crossing backwards and forwards between Belgium and Germany. The route ends in the picturesque town of Monschau.
Outside the metropolitan area of St. Vith, 90 percent of the route takes you through the High Fens-Eifel Nature Park. That means quiet roads and a lot of woodland along the way. The beautiful Our valley by the border to the German Eifel-Ardennes region is the icing on the cake.
Half the tour leads through the High Fens, where forest areas alternate with expansive peat bogs. The other 20 km takes you past open pastures around the Warche and Robertville reservoir, which you cross twice.
This route follows the picturesque valleys of the four streams Ulf, Braunlauf, Hasselbach and Our. So you don't just get the sporting enjoyment afforded by a hilly landscape. You also get some beautiful panoramas.
Taking the Ravel L45a, we head towards Weywertz to the Vennbahn, which leads us to a landscape of fields and meadows further to the north. Following the curve of the path, past Nidrum and Elsenborn, we catch sight of the lake in Berg. We reach Wirtzfeld along deserted paths.
This cycle route stretches between the Belgian town of Eupen and Roetgen in Germany. You ride along the Vennbahn cycle path for 9 km. You are surrounded by broadleaf woodland in the High Fens-Eifel Nature Park for a good three quarters of the route.
Half the tour runs along the Vennbahn, which is closed to motorised vehicles and winds its way in an elegant curve between the source regions of the Amel and the Warchenne. The open countryside with many valleys is occasionally dotted with little pieces of woodland.
To the south of St. Vith, you make your way down deeper into the Our valley through small river meadows and Lommersweiler tunnel. The ruins of Reuland Castle are a worthy and imposing end to this leg of the journey.
Almost 40% of the route follows the Vennbahn itself, affording an unexpected panoramic view of the valley across the German Eifel-Ardennes region. You cycle through dense forests and along the untouched peatland of the High Fens.
