One route, three countries through Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg

Experience type

Cultural & Nature

Duration

6 days & 5 nights

Location

Belgium

Price 1.100€ (*)

The cycle route of Vennbahn, one of the oldest cycling routes with embankments in Europe, takes visitors through three countries: Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg. From Aachen he runs through the Alto Fen to finish in Troisvierges. With its slight gradients of approximately 2%, take a leisurely journey through 125 km of nature with that special border feeling, where Vennbahn folklore and historical fact are friends and neighbors.

For over a hundred years, the Vennbahn was the iron link between the fields of Aachen and northern Luxembourg. But this old supply line also brought wealth and progress to this unique natural and cultural living space in the heart of Europe along the German-Belgian border. The Vennbahn has successfully survived a turbulent and treacherous period in history, which sometimes reserved a vital role.

Today the points are set for a new era. Gleaming and ragged steel rails obscured with creosote have given way to bicycle touring and relaxing walks along this flanked green ribbon.
