Tips

  • Sascha

    Sturdy shoes are recommended.
    Likewise, one should pay attention to the flags. If the Brackvenn is closed, that has its reason.
    In this case, there are a few kilometers further towards Eupen a beautiful hiking trail near Ternell.

    Nice area with many paths that often lead over wooden bogs over the moor.

    From here it goes on varied paths over footbridges and roots through moor.

    The bridge leads through the middle of the moor, which allows you to fully enjoy nature. Please note that dogs are not allowed on the jetties and in the nature reserves (also not leashed).

    Although a small round, but also in winter a beautiful landscape. Dogs are not allowed. Understandably with the partially narrow webs.
    Footbridges can be smooth when wet so be careful with the few downhill areas.
    Then take a side trip or buy Monschau for a coffee or mustard in the mustard mill.

    It's fun to walk over the boardwalks. A welcome change.

    The wooden walkways enable a safe transition over the moor and at the same time protect the subsoil. So - stay on the jetties!

    Very beautiful and varied path through the Venn.
    For the protection of nature and for your own safety, the bridges should not be left.

    On slatted frames by the "Royal peat bog" in the High Venn. The hike runs in Belgian territory. In the nature reserve the entry is only allowed on marked paths. For the protection of nature, paths are temporarily blocked.

    In the nature reserve the entry is only allowed on marked paths. To protect nature, paths are temporarily blocked, and marked by red warning flags. You should always have rucksack food and a hiking map with you. A great area. The detour in Monschau is a good idea.

    The Brackvenn is on both sides of the Monschauer Straße (N 67), which leads from Monschau to Eupen. The hiking trails are well signposted and there are always information boards along the wooden walkways.
    North of the N 67, the Brackvenn is divided into Nahtsief and Puzen. Parts of the area have been renatured. On the northern edge of this area is the duck pool, a pingo or palsen, which was filled with water through drainage ditches in order to have extinguishing water for fires in the Venn.
    South of the N 67 are the Venn areas in the Platten Venn, Hobbe and the royal peat bog. In this area there are several palsen or "bog eyes". One of them, the Hellenketel, is close to the Nahtsief car park.
    No peat was mined in the royal peat bog and the original raised bog vegetation is still preserved. The area is therefore under strict nature conservation and is not accessible.
    There are several pals in both parts of the Brackvennes. They originated at the end of the last ice age about 10,000 to 11,000 years ago and consist of a round earth wall that surrounds a water hole, the so-called bog eye. These geologically interesting formations can be easily recognized on aerial photographs, e.g. on google-earth.
    As in all Venn areas, there is a risk of fire if the drought persists. In such a case, a red flag is hoisted at the entrances to the Venn - entry into the Venn is then not permitted.

    The hiking car park in the Hohen Venn is an ideal starting point for tours in the high moor.

    The high moor has its charms in every season and is worth a visit.

    If you walk through the raised bog with your eyes open and take your time, you will recognize constant changes in the terrain which affect vegetation and plants.

    During a hike on the jetties, visitors will discover many beautiful and interesting plants and animals. Especially the latter are often found directly on the webs, as e.g. Dragonflies, beetles or lizards are in the sun and warm.

    If you love hiking over Steege, this is the place for you. A large part of the route consists of these. Sturdy shoes are still recommended, because not everything is about Steege.

    In the Venn, the footbridges allow you to cross the bog dry and without destroying nature. They are partly in bad condition and very narrow on some routes. In wet weather or in ice / snow, they can also be very slippery.

    The walkways serve for the safety of hikers, but also for the protection of nature and should not be left.
