TTT 2010 06 Belgie D1 Gilze Waimes
Published: 08/04/2019
rp 68 - Route de l'Ancienne Douane (Stavelot, Waals Gewest)
This TTT starts in Gilze-Rijen and is part of 3 days of touring in the Belgian Ardennes. This TTT is mainly on beautiful roads to the end point in Ovifat. The 1st stop is planned in Balen, at Frituur Heihoef, no fries yet, but coffee.
After coffee you drive further south to stop in Bassenge for lunch at L'Estaminet, L'Estaminet is a real Belgian Fries tent, so quality guaranteed.
After lunch you will also come to hilly areas, see elevation map, with the highest point at the end of the route. The end point is in the Hautes Fagnes Nature Park (Hoge Venen Eifel Nature Park) *.
* Hoge Venen-Eifel nature park; peatlands, limitless forests and deep river valleys. This German-Belgian nature park has an undeniable charm. One of the last highs in Europe. This cross-border area is part of the Eifel on the eastern side, while the western part belongs to the Ardennes. The peat area releases large amounts of water all year round and in this way feeds the western watercourses. Here you will also find the Signal of Botrange, the highest point in Belgium at 694 meters above sea level. More than 2700 km² of nature, located in North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland Palatinate and East Belgium. Near the end point is the Botrange Nature Park Center.

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