TTT 2010 06 Belgie D3 Waimes Asten
Published: 21/04/2019
Rue de Beusdael - Blieberg, Waals Gewest
This TTT starts in Ovifat and is part of 3 days of touring in the Belgian Ardennes. This TTT is mainly about beautiful roads and brings you back to the Netherlands and to Asten (Noord-Brabant). The 1st place of interest that you encounter, where you could stop for a while, is Lac de la Gileppe *
* The Gileppe dam (French: barrage de la Gileppe) is a dam in the Belgian province of Liège, in the municipalities of Jalhay and Baelen. The supply of water is assured by the Gileppe that originates in the High Fens. The most important feature of the dam is a 13.5 meter high and 300 tonne sandstone lion. The lion stands on top of the dam wall and was positioned in such a way that he proudly looks out towards the border that was only 5 kilometers away with what was then Prussia (Lontzen and Eupen). (Source: Wikipedia).

The 2nd place of interest where you definitely have to stop and let the statues work on you is: Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery and Memorial **
** The more than 20 hectares of the American military cemetery Henri-Chapelle house the remains of 7,992 American soldiers. Most of these men lost their lives during the advance of the US forces in Germany. The 1st American Infantry Division freed this location on September 11, 1944. A provisional war cemetery was set up on September 28, 1944.

After these 2 possibilities to stop for a while, we drive further to the Netherlands and in South Limburg we stop for coffee with Limburg pie in Partij / Witten at Café Herberg De Remise. After coffee, we continue to wind through the Limburg country to stop for lunch at Café Geraats in Grathem. After lunch it is more than half an hour before you reach the end point in Asten, where you can drink another cup of coffee to close the 3-day Ardennes.

Because I have driven large parts of this route myself, this route gets 4 stars.

About this region
Wallonia (; French: Wallonie [walɔni]; German: Wallonien [vaˈloːni̯ən] (listen) or Wallonie [valoˈniː]; Dutch: Wallonië [ʋɑˈloːnijə] (listen); Walloon: Walonreye [walɔnʀɛj]; Luxembourgish: Wallounien [vɑˈləʊ̯niə̯n]) is a region of Belgium. As the southern portion of the country, Wallonia is primarily French-speaking, and accounts for 55% of Belgium's territory, but only a third of its population. The Walloon Region was not merged with the French Community of Belgium, which is the political entity responsible for matters related mainly to culture and education, because the French Community of Belgium encompasses both Wallonia and the majority French-Speaking Brussels-Capital Region. The German-speaking minority in eastern Wallonia results from World War I and the subsequent annexation of three cantons that were initially part of the former German empire. This community represents less than 1% of the Belgian population. It forms the German-speaking Community of Belgium, which has its own government and parliament for culture-related issues. During the industrial revolution, Wallonia was second only to the United Kingdom in industrialization, capitalizing on its extensive deposits of coal and iron. This brought the region wealth, and from the beginning of the 19th to the middle of the 20th century, Wallonia was the more prosperous half of Belgium. Since World War II, the importance of heavy industry has greatly diminished, and the Flemish Region surpassed Wallonia in wealth, as Wallonia declined economically. Wallonia now suffers from high unemployment and has a significantly lower GDP per capita than Flanders. The economic inequalities and linguistic divide between the two are major sources of political conflicts in Belgium and a major factor in Flemish separatism. The capital of Wallonia is Namur, and the most populous city is Charleroi. Most of Wallonia's major cities and two-thirds of its population lie along the Sambre and Meuse valley, the former industrial backbone of Belgium. To the north lies the Central Belgian Plateau, which, like Flanders, is relatively flat and agriculturally fertile. In the southeast lie the Ardennes, hilly and sparsely populated. Wallonia borders Flanders and the Netherlands (Limburg) in the north, France (Grand Est and Hauts-de-France) to the south and west, and Germany (North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate) and Luxembourg (Capellen, Clervaux, Esch-sur-Alzette, Redange and Wiltz) to the east. Wallonia has been a member of the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie since 1980.

About this route collection
Ever since the early 90s of the last century, Promotor has been setting out the so-called Tank Bag Tours. You understand that the name still comes from the GPS-free era, when motorcyclists still searched their way on roads with a roadbook in the tank bag or router roll.

You have also seen the Tank Bag Tours of 2010 one by one, from now on also as a collection of 2010.
