Extensive roadworks in the High Fens

Published on 01.08.2022

From 14 March 2022, visitors of the High Fens should be prepared for delays in the course of diversions.  Large parts of the Venn Road (N676 from Mont-Rigi in the direction of Sourbrodt as well as the N647 in the direction of Elsenborn) will only be passable in an impaired manner or even closed completely from this date on. The full completion will take place in 6 stages and is expected to be finished by June 2023.   

Please inform yourself at your respective destination (accommodation - excursion destination - tourist information office) regarding your journey before you start your trip. The important tourist points should be accessible at all times, but the access situation changes. The approach is done either via Sourbrodt/Ovifat or via Malmedy/Mont Rigi.   

Drivers coming from Büllingen/Bütgenbach are recommended to drive via Monschau (G) to Eupen.
The route from Malmedy to Eupen, however, should always be passable. 




The bus routes 390 and 394 (Vennliner) will be diverted via Xhoffraix and Ovifat. These bus routes will thus not stop at Sourbrodt Post, Sourbrodt Gîte d'étape, Sourbrodt Chalet, Botrange Centre Nature and Signal de Botrange for the duration of the works.  

The police order can be found HERE.
It is only available in French.
