Cycling routes

This cycling route takes you to the border region of Belgium with the Netherlands. The route follows partly the Wire of Death (Dutch: Dodendraad). This was a lethal electric fence created by the German military to control the Dutch–Belgian frontier after the occupation of Belgium during the First World War.

Grote Routepaden created this route together with vzw Stichting Verhalis.

In the guidebook you will find detailed cycling maps with 'knooppunten', electric bike charging points, catering outlets, shops, accommodation, places of interest and locations of 'Dodendraad' monuments and stories. For a teaser click here.
