Route Stages : Ligne 38 2

De Plombières à Herve(stage 1)
On the Line 38 RAVeL

Starting from the mining site of Plombières, not far from the ‘Trois Frontières’ or ‘Three Borders’ panoramic tower (a symbolic spot set on the edge of the village of Gemmenich in Belgium and the towns of Vaals in the Netherlands and Aix-la-Chapelle/Aachen in Germany), you will cross the Pays de Herve region from east to west along Line 38. This old railway line, one of the first of its kind, is a symbol of the RAVeL and its friendliness. It took years of effort by local people before the local authorities finally began to set up the line.

De Herve à Chênée (Liège) (stage 2)
On the Line 38 RAVeL

During this stage, the Line 38 RAVeL gradually leaves the bocages of the Pays de Herve region. From the ‘Hasard’ slag heap between Retinne and Micheroux, Line 38 forms a real ecological corridor and a green lung for local people as the Liège agglomeration becomes increasingly densely populated. People on this route for leisure and tourism purposes now rub shoulders with daily users going to work, school, or to do their shopping.
