This TTT starts in Manderscheid and is part of a 3-day tour in the (Volcano) Eifel. This TTT is mainly about beautiful roads, there is a very small piece of highway (A2) at Sint-Joost to cross the mesh to Panheel.

From Manderscheid you go to Schönberg for the 1st stop at Zur alten Schmiede, you are already in Belgium again. After coffee you head north where you pass the border between Germany and Belgium a few times. In the meantime, drive through the "Parc Naturel des Hautes Fagnes" *.
* High Fens Eifel, the Hohes Venn Eifel Nature Park, is a large nature reserve in the Eifel. Hoge Venen Eifel is a cross-border area that lies not only in the German Eifel but also in part in Belgium, the Hoge Venen nature park. A large part is a protected nature area. Nature is special and very varied. There are rare plant and animal species in the Hoge Venen Eifel. The perfect area for nature lovers and hikers. Hoge Venen Eifel, the German-Belgian nature park (Naturpark Hohes Venn Eifel) covers a large area of no less than 2700 square kilometers. Part of the nature park is located in Belgium, the Hoge Venen. This nature reserve is located in the Belgian province of Liège. The Hoge Venen was created around 7500 years ago at the end of the last ice age. The remaining part is in Germany, in the Eifel and covers two states; North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate. The famous Eifel National Park is located in the Hoge Venen Eifel Naturpark.

After the High Fens, you cross the border with the Netherlands at Gemmenich and stop in Vaals to have lunch at Lodge 7. From the terrace you have a beautiful view and you can see the tower of the 3 country point in Vaals in the distance.

After lunch you have the opportunity to refuel in Nuth, you have driven about 180 KM. We drive further towards Grathem where we stop for a last drink to have a drink, so that we can rest on the last leg towards the end point in Asten. In Asten you can also refuel at the end point.

Because I have driven this route myself, this route gets 5 stars.

About this region
The Walloon Region (French: Région wallonne; German: Wallonische Region; Dutch: Waals gewest), usually simply referred to as Wallonia (; French: Wallonie [walɔni]; German: Wallonien [vaˈloːni̯ən] (listen) or Wallonie [valoˈniː]; Dutch: Wallonië [ʋɑˈloːnijə] (listen)) is one of the three regions of Belgium—alongside the Flemish Region and the Brussels-Capital Region. Covering 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 predominantly Francophone Brussels-Capital Region. There is a German-speaking minority in eastern Wallonia, resulting from the annexation of three cantons previously part of the German Empire at the conclusion of World War I. 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 has exceeded Wallonia in wealth as Wallonia has 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 Liège. Most of Wallonia's major cities and two-thirds of its population lie along the east-west aligned Sambre and Meuse valley, the former industrial backbone of Belgium. To the north of this valley, Wallonia lies on the Central Belgian Plateau, which, like Flanders, is a relatively flat and agriculturally fertile area. The south and southeast of Wallonia is made up of the Ardennes, an expanse of forested highland that is less densely populated. Wallonia borders Flanders and the Netherlands (the province of 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.
