The 10th anniversary of the Vennbahn was recently celebrated. Opened in 2013, the bicycle route between Aachen in Germany and Troisvierges in Luxembourg follows the route of the Vennbahn, a former railroad on the territory of Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg.

The 125-kilometer bike path winds through quiet valleys, over rugged heights and past abandoned railway stations. Along the way, you enjoy beautiful views. You pass historical towns such as Kornelimünster and Monschau and the castle ruins of Burg-Reuland. Although you cycle through the Eifel, the gradient never exceeds 2%. The particularly high quality of the route made it win several awards. The experienced cyclist can ride the route in one day but you can also make a real cycling vacation of it. On the website www.vennbahn.eu/nl/ you can find all the necessary info.
