Three Countries Tour between Meuse and Rhine


Bike Tour: Three Countries Tour between Meuse and Rhine - 8 days

Experience an unforgettable bike tour in the green heart of Western Europe. The route is nicely designed and follows bicycle paths and tranquil back roads. For most of this Europe bike tour, navigation is made easy with the cycling-by-numbers system. This cycling adventure will prove to be unforgettable as you pedal through three National Parks: Hoge Kempen in Belgium, Eifel in Germany, and De Meinweg in the Netherlands. You will roam past famous abbeys and castles, visit Maastricht and Monschau, and enjoy the bike path along the River Roer/Rur as you cycle through woods and heather fields.

After enjoying a wonderful breakfast buffet, set off through Roer and Meuse valleys to the town of Maaseik, Belgium, birth place of the Van Eyck painters. The route continues on a well-maintained cycle path through Hoge Kempen National Park to the town of Genk, Belgium.

Day 3:    Genk (B) - Maastricht (NL)
52 km

From nature to culture, it is a leafy ride to the town of Bilzen, Belgium and neighboring Alden Biezen castle. Subsequently, quiet country lanes will take you up and down to Kanne, Belgium, a pretty Flemish village with white and marlstone houses. Your destination is the elegant city of Maastricht, Netherlands. Here, there is something from all tastes including shops, museums, city walks, and outdoor cafes in Vrijthof square.

Day 4:    Maastricht (NL) - Eupen (B)
64 km

As you leave the city, follow the River Meuse south to the picturesque village of Eijsden, Netherlands. After crossing the border you will enter the Flemish Voer region, a paradise of unspoiled pastoral splendor. You will climb to 300 meters N.A.P. enjoying great vistas of the beautiful landscape. The Abbey of Val Dieu is today’s cultural highlight. Stay the night in the German speaking small town of Eupen.

Day 5:    Eupen (B) – Monschau (D)
32 km

Today's route contains some hills, however today will have less kilometers and the High Fens offer beautiful natural scenery. The gradual climb to 650 m N.A.P. is rewarded with gorgeous sweeping views. From here you’ll have a descend to the exquisite German town of Monschau (400 m N.A.P.), historically a center of wool, cloth production, and trade.

Day 6:    Monschau (D) – Düren (D)
62 km

In the morning you will continue to enjoy the wealth of natural beauty that the Eifel region has to offer. The River Rur will be your guide today, winding down to the ‘Flachland’ below. The German cycle paths are well-maintained and mostly far removed from road traffic. On the route to Düren you will encounter a series of friendly villages. Along the way you can choose to take part of the route by boat with a beautiful boat trip on the Rursee.

Day 7:    Düren (D) - Vlodrop (NL)
73 km

You will enjoy more beautiful scenery on your last cycling day. The journey down the River Rur continues until just before the Netherlands border when you turn off to visit De Meinweg National Park. One of the highlights of today is the Dalheimer mill which is still functioning today.
