    Take the railbike to Sourbrodt. Nice leisure activities at the Kalterherberger Hauptbahnhof. With a trolley, today they are called rail bikes, you can go for 30 euros per trolley after a briefing on a seven-kilometer route.

    The vehicles can accommodate up to four adults and at least two drivers are required to get around. As it is not possible to overtake on the railroad tracks, it starts at a pleasant pace in the direction of Sourbrodt, where, in addition to the driving pleasure, you can soon enjoy the idyllic landscape of the High Fens. When, at a certain speed, the typical chattering of the rail vehicles can be heard, the pleasure of driving does not just start for hobby railroaders.

    There is a small caffe in a very nice old railway wagon. A wooden terrace was built on these where you can enjoy your coffee with fresh Belgian waffle or the cold beer.
    The train station is also the starting point for a rail bike tour (approx. 2 hours) on the old tracks of the Vennbahn. More information on: railbike.be/de

    The Vennbahnradweg is a cross-border long-distance cycle path between Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg, which follows the route of the Vennbahn, which was built at the time of Prussia and is now formerly Vennbahn, over around 130 km from Aachen through the Hohes Venn-Eifel nature park and the Ardennes to Troisvierges (German: Ulflingen) runs. It is part of the RAVeL network (French: Réseau Autonome de Voies Lentes), which is a network of trails for hikers, riders and cyclists in Wallonia, Belgium and was launched in October 1995. In German-speaking countries, the hiking and cycling path was named Vennbahn and its total length is classified as a premium cycle path.The bike and hiking trail is popular with many cyclists, skaters and hikers, and the neighboring communities promise an increase in local tourism in the future. This is supported by the fact that some former train station buildings have already been converted into rest stops, hotels and pensions are setting up for day tourists and local public transport provides so-called bicycle buses as shuttle services. In the course of 2013, seven little steel houses were built between Roetgen and Kalterherberg in the shape of a “lost wagon”, which are intended as weather protection or rest areas.

    This little stopover offers something interesting for everyone. Railway wagons, gastronomy.

    Vennbahn and RuruferRadweg cross at this point. Kalterherberg is located in Germany, Küchelscheid in Belgium.

    Good place for a break. You can also rent a trolley here and drive over the High Fens to Surbrot.

    Right here on the border between Belgium and Germany there is a good opportunity for a break. Food and drink is provided, as well as seating or even a ride on the handcar.
