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

    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 ...

    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.

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

    Very beautiful paths, partly over wooden walkways, through a varied Vennlandschaft which has its charms in every season.

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

    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. 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.

    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 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 will be hoisted at the entrances to the Venn - entry into the Venn is then not permitted.
