Tips

  • Bernd 🌲🦌🍄🥾

    Especially when it rains or after longer periods of rain, the partly natural paths are very muddy. Distant views are only possible to a limited extent due to the dense vegetation.

    The Brackvenn lies 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. At the northern edge of this area is the duck pond, a pingo or palsen, which was filled with water through drainage ditches in order to have water to extinguish fires in the fens.
    South of the N 67 are the Venn areas Im Platten Venn, Hobbe and the Royal Peat Bog. There are several pals or "bog eyes" in this area. One of them, the Hellenketel, is close to the Nahtsief car park.
    No peat was extracted in the royal peat bog and the original raised bog vegetation is still preserved. The area is therefore under strict nature protection and is not accessible.
    In both parts of the Brackvenn there are several palsen (pingos). They were formed at the end of the last ice age around 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 seen well on aerial photographs, e.g. on google-earth.
    As in all Venn areas, there is a risk of fire in the event of prolonged drought. In such a case, a red flag is hoisted at the entrances to the Venn - entering the Venn is then not allowed.

    The Hautes Fagnes form a region which extends, in Belgium in the Walloon region and, in Germany, in the Rhineland-Palatinate and the North-Rhine-Westphalia. In Dutch, Hoge Venen, in German, Hohes Venn. In 1957, the Hautes Fagnes state nature reserve was created.

    Very nice hike with many footbridges. If the parking lot Nahätief too full, as Gerd suggests it already above, there are a few meters further towards Mützenich still a Parkpaltz. Both parking spaces are connected by a small path through the forest. So you do not have to be in the street ditch from A to B.

    Very adventurous to walk through a plank path. We should not be slippery or wet.

    Beautiful path on wooden footbridges through the Brackvenn; the bridges are mostly quite narrow and can be slippery and slippery when wet. In some places the bars are in a not particularly good condition.
    The moor may not be entered in dry conditions (red flag). On hot summer days it is better to go early in the morning or in the evening and do not forget sun protection.

    The Venn areas Brackvenn, Nahtsief, Königliches Porfmoor and Im Platten Venn together form a landscape unit. The N 67 runs through the area from Mützenich to Eupen. Some hiking parking spaces allow access to these moor areas. In the southern part of this fens there are several Palsen and the Eupener Grenzgraben, also called "Maria-Theresia Graben".

    The webs through the seams are very narrow, sometimes extremely weathered and sections not walkable (as of 05/2018). This is a real problem in wet weather, as the ridges are slippery and the ground is sometimes very muddy.

    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.
