Cycling across borders, discovering new landscapes, learning new languages? Nothing simpler! On this tour, pay our Belgian neighbours a visit and get to know the country and its people better.

Ovelo – From the Weser dam to the Vennbahn

You ride almost three quarters of this route through the woods of the cross-border High Fens - Eifel nature parc. A more open landscape awaits you along the Vennbahn and the Weser dam.

Ovelo - Out and about in the upper Our valley

The young Our and the Vennquerbahn (Ravel L45a) between Honsfeld and the German border village of Losheim play the leading role in this cycle route loop. You ride through the eastern part of Belgium.  

Ovelo - The High Fens between the Rur and Warche

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.

Ovelo – Four streams and a castle

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.

Vennbahn Stage 5 - St.Vith - Burg-Reuland

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.

Ovelo - The High Fens in the eastern part of the Hertogenwald

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.

Ravel L45a – Bütgenbach - Losheimergraben
