This route along the Rur (“Rurufer-Radweg”) follows the entire course of the river.
Between the source of the Rur in the Hohes Venn near Botrange (Belgium) and its confluence with the Maas near Roermond (Netherlands), the path travels through Germany via Monschau to Einruhr, then along the Rursee lake, and through the Rureifel, Düren, Jülich and theHeinsberger Land region. This very popular route, with just a few ascents and descents, can even be combined with a boat or train journey or a canoe trip in some places. As well as the beautiful river landscape of the Lower Rhine, the Heinsberger Land region also has Schloss Rurich palace, the “Schacht 3” visitors’ mind, the BEGAS HAUS museum, the view from the keep of Burg Wassenberg castle and the Effelder Waldsee forest lake to offer.
