Pleasure tour 05 - 8,9 km

Walking · Sankt Vith

Kleinweberbach, or the valley in which nature reveals itself in all its diversity.

Uphill at first, to discover the unusual diversity of the flora and fauna here along the Kleinweberbach. On the right, some beavers have built their dam. Above the treetops a black stork flaps gracefully by. The further we press on into the valley, the stiller nature gets. Has it perhaps hidden in the bushes?

The twitter of birds and the gurgle of the stream can be heard from the undergrowth. The wayside flowers and the many butterflies which flutter around them, the hay meadows, mixed woodland and streams endow this place with a natural landscape that seems positively prodigal. When you reach the Knieberg, the route leads eastward into another valley, which is a conservation area. Here, the Großweberbach winds its way through a hay meadow in which a few cows graze peacefully. Following the stream, we reach the broad valley of the Our at sunset.
