Starting point is the old train station of Raeren next to the Vennbahn cycle path. Not far from the Marmorwerk, the first slopes are already waiting for you, and you dive deeper into the forest. Shortly afterwards, the western loop begins counterclockwise. You pass the Iterbach and immerse into the unique landscape. Not far from the Vennbahn you will ride rooty trails that are great fun. Then you climb uphill for a few hundred meters before crossing the Steinbach bridge. Here again, you ride a rooty and stony path that requires full attention. The last flowing trail brings you back to the café where you can treat yourself to a coffee or a cold drink.

Author’s recommendation

Take a break and unwind on the café terrace in an old railway wagon at the former railway station in Raeren.
