This tour is certainly one of the most beautiful in the south of East Belgium. It has everything a mountain biker’s heart could wish for.

Lots of climbs, not much asphalt, a primaeval, characteristic landscape, picturesque villages, and mountain ridges which have a magnificent view to offer on both sides. Having said that, it does call for a certain degree of fitness, so it is only suitable for practised bikers. As its name already indicates, this tour takes you near the border between Germany and Luxembourg. The region around Ouren in particular is known for its tough climbs and fast descents.

Author’s recommendation

A visit to the castle in Reuland is always well worth while.
