This is a beautiful one day ride, most of it crossing the forested areas of the High Fens National Park in Belgium. The cherry on the cake is the incredibly picturesque town of Monschau, perfect for a long beer break before heading back to Eupen. The area is specially beautiful in autumn.
Accessibility is easy by train from most of the big cities in Belgium. Eupen and Monschau are touristic cities that have shops open even on weekends and holidays.
