Interesting walk with historical background, beautifully explained on panels. The tour partly runs through Luxembourg territory.
We started at the castle of Tavigny where a small parking lot is provided.
It is a varied walk, one walks through the forest, along small paths and with beautiful views.
There are 2 drawbacks to this walk: people walk a little too much on asphalt roads and the condition of the paths in Belgium. In the Luxembourg part, the paths are neatly mowed, but in Belgium people can hardly get through because of the high nettles, thistles or thorns.
In Begië the walk is marked with a green rectangle, in Luxembourg with blue flags.

We started from the carpool parking at the Bekkevoort exit of the E314.
This tour mainly runs along small roads and unpaved field roads, which are easy to drive on.
The eternal problem in Brabant are the concrete roads: horrible to drive over. The bicycle paths are often narrow uneven concrete strips.
The highlight of this tour is the Vlooybergtoren. World famous in Flanders thanks to a TV series.
From here one can see the basilica of Scherpenheuvel. But the poppies in the grain that remind us of World War I are also worth a photo.

Parked on the football field: from there you can easily reach the starting point of the tour.
This is actually the Traumpfädchen Löfer Rabenlaypfad, with a small adjustment: we have risen a little higher on the plateau to better enjoy the beautiful view.
Beautiful walk: through the forest, on the plateau, through the vineyards ... and then the views: unsurpassed.

Started at Dieblingen cemetery.
From there cycled over Waldesch to Rhens. The climb is via good roads, the descent is along field roads.
In Rhens we visited the Königsstuhl.
Then we drove along the Rhine to the Deutsche Eck in Koblenz.
Returned via the Moselradweg.

This is Randobel's Promenade des Hougardiers. (randobel.be/track/detail/id/1613/lg/fr)
I did start the walk in Hoegaarden.
It is a beautiful walk with beautiful views, nice hollow roads and on the plateau the church of Hoegaarden as a point of reference.
And now is the ideal time to do this walk. Everywhere the elder, dog rose, poppy and cornflower are in bloom.
But the daisies on the vacant grounds are especially fascinating.

We left again from the church square in Schaffen.
The first 15 km mainly concern unpaved field and country roads. So this route is not suitable for racing bikes.
But nature is beautiful. The vistas, the hollow roads, the orchards and the grain fields: this is Brabant at its best.
We returned along the F22, the bicycle highway on the former track from Diest to Tienen.
