On the edge of Aachen Forest, between Köpfchen and Lichtenbusch, on the border between Germany and Belgium, lies the source of the Göhl.

Soon, numerous small watercourses join forces and form the fast-flowing Göhl, which winds its way for some 56 km through the land of the three borders and the Heuvelland. The Göhl valley route Via Gulia, approximately 53 kilometres in length, can be walked from the source to the Maas, and anyone who does that will get to know a border region which has a rich history, culture and diversity to offer.

Author’s recommendation

Vieille Montagne Museum - The Vieille Montagne Museum presents the regional history of zinc ore mining (calamine) on two floors by means of audio guides, display panels and exhibited originals, as well as the political, social, economic and ecological effects of mining on the region.
