Four countries roundtrip Weiswampach Schengen Weiswampach
One of the many Luxembourgh Castles
in 1985 the agreement was signed in Schengen, so that we can now freely cross borders in Europe. And how can you benefit from it better than with a day trip through 4 countries?

The tour, one of the many beautiful 1000 bend routes, starts and ends in Weiswampach, a small town in the head of Luxembourg. Shortly after departure we drive through Belgium for a short time.
Back in Luxembourg we drive on beautiful roads towards the capital.
Shortly after we have passed the capital, we enter the third country of the route, France.
Back in Luxembourg we arrive at the place where this route is all about: Schengen - The birthplace of a Europe without borders.
The signing of the Schengen agreement on board the passenger ship "MS Princesse Marie-Astrid". It ensured that this quiet wine village on the Moselle suddenly became the symbol of the free movement of people in Europe. Discover the cradle of Europe without borders with its museums and special architecture!
A visit to Schengen is not only worth it because of its history and its European significance, which you are confronted with throughout the village, but also because of its special location at a point where Germany, France and Luxembourg meet. The wine from the Moselle region, the river that winds its way through these three countries, is present everywhere as a connecting element and tasting a Moselle wine is therefore a must for every visitor who is not at the wheel.
After crossing the Moselle we continue our route along this river in Germany.
Three-quarters of the route is the Mullerthal trails where nature lovers who like to combine motorcycling with a piece of hiking should definitely make a stop. Of course also very worthwhile to take a few pictures.

This route is definitely worth 5 stars because of the quality of the roads, the beautiful landscape and a visit to the city where history has been written for Europe.

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.
