    The Vennbahn is a former railway line connecting Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg. After the track lost importance, the tracks were dismantled and built a cross-country bike path. And that is really well done.You start today's stage on the Vennbahnradweg in Raeren. For a long time the place had lived on ceramics, which was given a respectable monument by the pottery museum in the castle.The bike path meanders through the German-Belgian border area in the Eifel. But even if you are currently in Germany, the former Vennbahn is part of the Belgian territory.On the way, you often meet witnesses of the former railway company, such as old locomotives. If you ever want to change the vehicle and cycle with the trolley through nature, you can do that in Kalterherberg: railbike.be.In the afternoon you will reach the Hohe Venn, a mysterious, unspoiled landscape and one of the last moors in Europe.Just before you reach the end of the stage with Waimes, you can turn onto the Vennquerbahn. Then you reach after a few minutes the Bütgenbacher lake, a very nice recreational area with swimming.
