Okay, the highest point in Belgium could be more spectacular, but the scenery is certainly beautiful. From Eupen (a nice little town), the steep road soon leads into the countryside. One morning I had the road to myself and could concentrate on my legs. The tarmac stretches almost endlessly through woodland and moorland towards Baraque Michel, where the landscape comes back to life. The route continues on good tarmac until you finally reach the Botrange tower and can enjoy the moment on the roof of Belgium. A very beautiful section on my Eifel/Ardennes tour today. This also includes the great descent on the super tarmac road towards Sourbrodt. I will certainly return here.

Okay, der höchste Punkt Belgiens könnte spektakulärer sein, aber landschaftlich schön ist er allemal. Von Eupen (nettes Städtchen) geht es relativ bald über die steile Straße ins Grüne. An einem Vormittag hatte ich die Straße für mich und konnte mich auf meine Beine konzentrieren. Durch Waldstrecke und Moorlandschaft zieht sich der Asphalt fast endlos in Richtung Baraque Michel, wo wieder menschliches Leben in die Landschaft einkehrt. Auf gutem Asphalt geht es noch ein gutes Stück weiter, bis man endlich am Turm der Botrange ankommt und den Moment am Dach Belgiens genießen kann. Ein sehr schöner Abschnitt auf meiner heutigen Eifel/Ardennen-Tour. Dazu zählt auch die tolle Abfahrt auf der super asphaltierten Straße in Richtung Sourbrodt. Hierher werde ich sicherlich zurückkehren.

Climb over a wide road that is sometimes driven fast but is otherwise quiet (and overtaking is actually always neat). Just after the start, turn left into a small junction that starts nice and steep and then via a residential area back onto the main road where you turn left again. This is followed by an endless road up to Baraque Michel which is actually already a summit. Before the very highest point (also in Belgium) continue cycling and after a slight descent there is a left turn and a gentle climb (over yet another wide road) to Signal de Botrange. Despite the average low percentage, you make quite a few altitude metres and the scenery is largely beautiful and changes nicely as you get higher.

Klim over een brede weg waar soms hard wordt gereden maar die verder wel rustig is (en het inhalen gaat eigenlijk altijd wel netjes). Net na het begin linksaf een klein afstekertje in die lekker steil begint en daarna via een villawijk weer uitkomt op de hoofdweg waar je weer linksaf gaat. Daarna volgt een eindeloze weg tot aan Baraque Michel wat eigenlijk al een top is. Voor het allerhoogste punt (ook van België) even doorfietsen waarna na een lichte afdaling een afslag naar links en een rustige klim (over alweer een brede weg) naar Signal de Botrange volgt. Ondanks het gemiddeld lage percentage maak je flink wat hoogtemeters en de omgeving is grotendeels fraai en verandert mooi als je hoger komt.
