Going out of the village, we follow a field track, surrounded by hedges and beech trees, into a dreamy meadow landscape. There are benches here and there so that you can sit and enjoy nature for a moment. We’re on the old footpath, which leads to the former station at Robertville. No trains stop here any more now. Instead cyclists and pedestrians are en route along the Vennbahn, the well known railway line cycle path. 

A little way further on, a winding path leads down into the Warche valley as far as the river. Beavers have found a home here. In some places the river is torrential; in others it just burbles along. On gangplanks and narrow trails the route goes downstream along the Warche. Then we come to the lake and follow the path on the left-hand shore. Anglers sit here, waiting calmly and patiently for a good catch. Back in Robertville, we look back on a varied, relaxing walk.

Author’s recommendation

Remember to pack your swimming gear in the summer. At the end of this walk you come to the beach at Robertville.
