Where Europe is more than a dream!

 Discover regions where Europe has long been more than just a beautiful dream. You will travel through the three-border region of Belgium-Netherlands-Germany and through the region of Germany-Belgium-Luxembourg and get to know four beautiful European countries. Your tours will take you through the Eifel and Ardennes as well as cities such as Eupen, Maastricht and Monschau. A good part of the route is on the Vennbahnweg. With a length of 125 kilometres, it is one of the longest railway track bike paths in Europe. In 2014, it was named “Bycourse of the Year” in the Netherlands. After this eight-day journey, you will understand the reasons for this.

Itinerary

Travel to Maastricht under your own steam. After the welcome, visit places like the market with the historic city hall and the Vrijthof with its nice restaurants and cafés.

After the start in Maastricht we will go to Belgium today. You cycle to Raeren Castle with its pottery museum. Your destination is Eupen with its magnificent town houses and many historic squares.

You come to the nature reserve Hohes Venn-Eifel. From Kalterherberg your route follows the Vennbahn cycle path. It takes you to the old railway station of Sourbrodt, the Montenauer ham smoky and Sankt Vith.

Today you reach Burg-Reuland, one of the most beautiful castle ruins in Belgium, as well as the Luxembourg municipality of Troisvierges. Then continue by train or bike through beautiful countryside with some ascents to Clervaux.

Today, the main attraction is the charming nature, which, however, also has some climbs in store. You cycle through the Our valley in the High Fens Eifel Nature Park and on romantic paths to Butgenbach in Belgium.

You are following a leisurely route today. Relax, cycle over the Vennbahn to Aachen. Take a break along the way to visit a terrace in the picturesque Eifel towns of Monschau and Kornelimünster. The last 30 km to Aachen is “uphill” and you still have enough energy to admire the historic city of Charlemagne.

From Aachen the route leads back to the Netherlands, from Lemiers on the long-distance cycle path LF 13 through the picturesque countryside of Limburg back to Maastricht.

Nach dem Frühstück individuelle Rückreise oder Beginn Ihrer Verlängerung.

Tour character

You cycle most of the time on a former railway line, which has now been converted into a cycle path. Very good cycle paths and roads.

teilweise sehr anspruchsvoll
die Strecke nach Eupen und die Stadt selbst kann man sich sparen. Auf der Strasse fährt es sich nicht schön. Eupen selbst hat nichts zu bieten. Die Hotels waren bis auf das Hotel in Monschau alle sehr gut; teilweise sogar mit Schwimmbad. Die Tagestouren waren uns allerdings mit 60-70km zu lange. Man hat kaum Zeit sich etwas anzuschauen. Die mitgelieferte Beschreibung der Fahrt ist an einigen Stellen missverständlich. Das haben auch andere Radler bemängelt.
