The route collection 'Driedaagse Eifel Trip' is a mini-trip to the Eifel in Germany in which both the arrival and departure are part of the combined route pleasure.
The first route 'Tienen-Rurberg' is already a winding track, where attention is also paid to the beauty of the region. There are plenty of rest points and, if desired, some tourist stops. The route is certainly suitable for the novice motorcyclist and for people who would like to pay some attention to, for example, a tourist attraction.
The three-day starts and ends in sugar city Tienen. Shortly after departure, you will already dive into the Walloon region. Interesting to know is that the speed limits have been set differently there. 90 km / h is allowed outside the village and city centers, unless of course indicated otherwise.
On route 1 you cross various, but very important rivers for the Walloon country, the Maas, the Ourthe, the Amblève…, they all slide under your wheels. An important place you will pass on route 1 is 'Spa', the village where the famous water comes from. You can visit one or more sources here without obligation. After Spa, pleasant roads take you further to the Rursee where you can spend the night during this mini-trip.
The second stage, '60 bends in the Eifel ', is a dream of a ride and a very technical, 167 km long route in which 60 hairpin bends become your part in this fascinating, beautiful region. Immediately after starting the route, the first pins will appear and this will remain so until the end of the route. Nice long stretches on a particularly good road connect nicely with the curves that will put your driving skills to the test.
Besides the fact that you can visit some highlights such as Monschau or Vogelsang, you can also flirt a number of times with the Belgian-German border and you can also visit the - in circles very well known - biker café 'Biker Ranch' where you can experience German cuisine up close if you wish. Finally, the 60 pins will take you back to Rurberg where a good night's sleep will be welcome to prepare you for the intensive return of this three-day trip.
The return ride from Rurberg to Tienen is a long (263 km), but very enjoyable ride, almost exclusively on local regional roads. The ride takes you past the lakes of Butgenbach & Robertville and famous places such as Elsenborn, Malmédy, Signal de Botrange, Baraque Michel and Elsenborn. All this while driving through the beautiful High Fens, a nature reserve that is unparalleled in the Ardennes. You will also pass the beautiful Limburg hills and, if you wish, you can visit the three-country point of Vaals.
This three day trip is easy to do and Rurberg is not deep in Germany. It offers more than enough technicality and - for those who also want something different - there is not only enough diversity to be found in Rurberg and the surrounding area, but also on the routes themselves. So something for everyone!
That is why this short, but nevertheless very nice three-day trip is highly recommended for every type of motorcyclist!
