DAY 1: from Eupen to Blankenheim

DAY 2: from Blankenheim to Koblenz

DAY 3: from Koblenz to Frankfurt

Day 1: from Eupen to Blankenheim

This is the route I've taken on the first day. 64,7 km, starting with a massive, steady climb, somewhat flat stretches of road and towards a few steep hills.

Cycle routes:
  • From Eupen to Schöneseiffen
    Red line is the Bundesstraße. I took this route.

    If you look at the left side of the google map screenshot, you'll notice the black border. This is the country border. Now look at the right side of the map. Do you notice there being 2 lines? The area between these borders is Belgian territory. Hence Mützenich is a German land that is surrounded by Belgium.

    Ascend: 83m; descend: 16m; distance: 11,5 km; estimated time: 39 minutes
  • From Schöneseiffen to Schleiden (Olef)
    Here I've passed the world-renowned stream 'Olef'. A moment I will look back to years from now. Distance (4,3) on map is from Schöneseiffen to Schleiden.
  • From Schleiden to Krekel (Kall)
    Almost there in Blankenheim.
  •  Krekel to Blankenheim

    I cycled over the Bundesstraße. It seems that good alternatives were available. Oh well.

Duration: 1 day
Difficulty: average-difficult (you need gears to do this one)
Distance: 68 km
Countries: Belgium, Germany


Day 2: from Blankenheim to Koblenz

Cycle routes:
  • From Blankenheim (NRW) to Rheinlandpfalz (border)

    I've made a repair-stand in front of the store because my tire was deflated again.

    Only going downhill. Very nice.

    The route from the border of NRW to Barweiler.

Day 3: from Koblenz to Frankfurt
