The journey starts here

Whether from Aachen to Troisvierges or the other way around, the Vennbahn cycle path is always a relaxed experience. The low gradient of the track and the fact that it is tarmacked virtually along its entire length ensures a high level of comfort during the ride. Moreover, the Vennbahn is part of the RAVeL programme of the Walloon region of Belgium and thus reserved for non-motorised traffic, which means that families, in particular, can enjoy safe and carefree biking fun.
