At this year’s International Tourism Exchange in Berlin (ITB), the Cycle Route “Vennbahn” was awarded four stars for quality by the Allgemeiner Deutscher Fahrrad-Club (ADFC), Germany’s leading cycling association. At a press conference to announce the prize, the award certificate was handed to DG Tourism Minister Isabelle Weykmans.

“For the Vennbahn, being accepted into the ADFC’s four-star awards category is a further important sign of recognition. It demonstrates clearly that all the effort was worth it, transcending our boundaries to create a cross-frontier, economically successful tourism project. Joining the ranks of the ADFC Quality Routes is additional encouragement for us to maintain our current course to ensure success at all levels”, said Minister Weykmans in her acceptance speech at the ITB press conference.
