Bütgenbach lake

Departure is from the former Sourbrodt station, to reach, via the Vennbahn, node point 44. Between Sourbrodt and Bütgenbach, the small, pleasant, and gently sloping paths offer breathtaking views of the Warche valley. Join the RAVel along Line 45a towards Bütgenbach lake. This resort-like village reveals unspoiled nature, large forests, vast green expanses, magnificent bocages, and nature reserves that are worthy of preservation.

You have two choices: you can ride around the lake, taking the 10 kilometer path along the banks that departs from node point 17, or you can relax on one of the lake’s beaches and enjoy a picnic. The various options can obviously be combined. After a well-earned break, rejoin the RAVel to calmly return to your starting point.

Eat and drink: Nidrum, Elsenborn, Bütgenbach
