Starting in Saint-Vith, a commune that has been tossed from one side of the border to the other by the vagaries of history, this stage takes you towards the romantic Our valley, nestling among the massifs of the Eifel and the Ardennes. You pass through the charming village of Neidingen and the stop of the old Lommersweiler railway station before reaching Steinebrück on the Belgian-German border.


The route:
From the site of the old Saint-Vith/Sankt-Vith railway station, you follow the Line 47 RAVeL for 800 metres and then you are directed left on small roads as far as Neidingen. Take care not to miss a panel at each crossroads.
As you come out of Neidingen, take the Line 47 RAVeL again.
After the site of the old Lommersweiler railway station, stay on your left on the Line 46 RAVeL as far as the end of this stage in Steinebrück.
From the start in Saint-Vith to Steinebrück, the route is largely smooth (asphalt) with short uneven stretches (fine, compacted stones).
Height difference: 
Imperceptible incline.

The entire route is marked by specific ‘Line 47 - Vennbahn RAVeL’ and ‘Line 46 RAVeL’ directional signs.
Safety, precautions: 
Take care when crossing roads.
