Geldermalsen Venlo Dueren Cochem
Published: 26/10/2019
Day 1 of our 10 day trip through 8 countries. We start centrally in the Netherlands and drive through Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, France, Luxembourg and a very small part through Belgium.

We start early at the meeting point in Geldermalsen because we have more than 370 kilometers ahead.
The end point is Cochem on the Moselle, where we spend the night in one of the many hotels.

We avoid the highway and the first part of the journey goes through the beautiful Brabant and Limburg landscape. Part of the route runs along rivers and lakes.
Along the way you pass nice little villages where you can stop for a short stop.
In Venlo we stop for lunch, along the Maas and in the Center (RP11) there are several restaurants, snack bars and cafés for a nice lunch.

At Venlo we cross the border in Germany and we drive on provincial roads to Düren, a small town near Aachen where you can stop for a short break for something to drink and eat.

After Düren we dive into the Eifel and it becomes interesting, beautiful roads through hills and mountains with many curves, from RP30 it becomes seriously nice to steer with many hairpin bends, ascents and descents, so enjoy !!!
In the evening we arrive in Cochem, here are several hotels and or campsites to spend the night.
We stayed in Hotel Zehnthof. Nice spacious rooms, very extensive breakfast and a closed garage for the motorbikes (for a fee).

This ride is worth 4 stars because of the beautiful roads through Brabant, Limburg and the Eifel.
