This extensive tour runs over some of the 18 circuits and was created in cooperation with the Belgian mountain biking magazine O2Bikers. It has now become a true "classic" and connects the mountain biking strongholds of Bütgenbach, Malmedy, St Vith and Reuland Castle, covering no less than 2,650 metres in positive altitude change over a distance of 190 km. Divided into three loops, you can ride the tour either in a circuit or in two, three or more stages.

This is a great tour for experienced mountain bikers that starts and finishes in St. Vith, and traverses the Ourtal region with a short detour over the German border. Leaving St. Vith, the tour passes through Neidingen to Maspelt and then to Reuland Castle. Across the Vennbahn, you must conquer the hill of Ourberg, before the hilly landscape of the Our Valley comes into view. Now, the terrain gets interesting for mountain bikers. Climb the hill at Leithum and take in the view of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. A stony path leads into the quiet village of Ouren, where, after you pass the campsite, the terrain gets hilly again. Following the picturesque stream the Seisbach, a long forest path takes you up to the former customs office at Lützkampen; you are now in the German Eifel.

A fun descent into Heckhalenfeld ends in the village of Auel, on the banks of the River Our. The route continues to follow this small border river until it takes you up to Lommersweiler, near Steinebrück, and then back down through Steinebrück and Breitfeld before you cruise back into the charming town of St. Vith.

Author’s recommendation

While in the area, a visit to the Reuland castle ruin is worth your while. Above the village of Ouren you can find some spectacular panoramic views of the Our Valley.
