Cycling in East Belgium

Both keen athletic cyclists and pleasure cyclists get their money's worth in equal measure when they go cycling in East Belgium. The comprehensive network of cycle paths has moments of true happiness in store for everyone.


Cycle tours on disused railway lines such as the Vennbahn or the extensively networked Ravel cycle routes are especially popular. The Vennbahn cycle route is one of Europe's longest cross-border railway line cycle paths, following a largely flat route from Germany via East Belgium to Luxembourg. The honeycomb network of cycle paths provides many other options for relaxed pedalling. At 850 km in length, this network offers potential for both ambitious and less athletic riders.

The racing bike tours over the hills and through the magnificent panoramas of the Eifel-Ardennes region are challenging. Mountain bikers too find ideal conditions and a signposted network of more than 480 km in East Belgium. The wild landscapes on the banks of the Amel, Our and Warche in the south and the Weser and Hill in the north are particularly suitable for mountain bike tours. There's an on-line tour planner with an app available to users for the planning of their cycle tours. This way, tours can be put together conveniently and retrieved off line from en route too.

The entire network has been developed in an exemplary manner and offers bicycle-friendly accommodation (bed+bike), bicycle and e-bike rental as well as bike shuttles and a repair service. These customised cycle tours without baggage also promise a carefree cycling holiday.
