From the old railway station in Waimes, the Vennbahn takes you through lush green and gently undulating hills. An ideal location for paddocks, which you can marvel at by the woodland area of Wolfsbusch. The aroma of freshly smoked Ardennes ham wafts towards you as you cycle towards Montenau. In Born, the route leads you under the imposing Freiherr-von-Korff viaduct and then onwards to the lively little town of St. Vith. Here at the local history museum (Heimatmuseum) “Between Venn und Schneifel” you can immerse yourself in the chequered past of the Vennbahn.Show map
For more than a century, the Vennbahn was the iron link between Aachen and the north of Luxembourg. An eventful period in the truest sense of the word which gave rise to a great deal of history and stories. There are a total of 20 locations around the Vennbahn where you can search for traces of the peculiarities of the countryside and people of the region. The stories are visually underpinned by comics typical of Belgium. Have fun on your discovery tour!

Shortly after the small forested area past the imposing motorway viaduct, you cycle through the sedate little village of Neidingen. Once again, numerous streams and small rivers are your constant companion along the route and provide you with a landscape rich in variety. The part of the route through the tunnel near Lommesweiler puts you in the mood for the picturesque Our valley and is as impressive as it is cool. On the journey towards Hemmeres you will cross the German-Belgian border once more. Back on Belgian territory, the charmingly situated chapel of Weweler appears on the horizon after a while, which sits enthroned high up on the Our hill in Reuland. The ruins of Reuland Castle mark the end of this stage in impressive fashion.
