    Raised bogs are unique natural landscapes. They are located on high plateaus and are characterized by a large excess of water, which is supplied solely by the rainwater. In contrast to peat bogs, which draw their water essentially from the groundwater.
    Raised bogs have a water content of up to 90% and thus also form water holes and lakes.

    Recommended in every season. When wet, the bars can be a bit slippery.

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

    The royal peat bog is located next to the Brackvenn and is remarkable insofar that in contrast to this never peat was mined. It is still untouched and natural ...

    If one still has a sense of nature, he is in good hands here. Very varied area. It is a pleasure simply incomprehensibly beautiful.

    The high Venn is an experience in every season and always different.

    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.

    A beautiful area. Through the Royal peat bog along the Hill to Ternell. Super.

    Nice walk on wooden walkways through the Brackvenn; the bridges are sometimes quite narrow and can be smooth and slippery when wet. In a few places the bridges are not in a particularly good condition.
    The bog must not be entered when it is dry (red flag). Better go early in the morning or in the evening on hot summer days and don't forget sun protection.
    Many dragonflies can be seen near water pools.

    The Brackvenn is part of the raised bog between Monschau and Eupen.
    There are mostly easy-to-walk trails here. The bridges are sometimes very narrow and they can be very slippery when wet and ice.
    The paths should not be left for your own safety and nature conservation

    Here you can still find the vegetation typical of a raised bog with peat moss, heather, cranberries and cotton grass. If you want to hike here, you should bring sturdy shoes, rucksack provisions and, if available, binoculars. Warning: dogs are sometimes not allowed here! Please inquire beforehand whether it is possible to bring your four-legged friend.

    Here the landscape, characterized by the harsh climate, is still wild and original. A visit is worthwhile in every season.
