The 125km long Kyll Cycle Route goes from Weywertz in Belgium to Trier.
By closing the gap between Jünkerath and Weywertz, you can connect the Vennbahn Cycle Route with the Kyll Cycle Route. The route leads on the Belgian side from Weywertz, along the Bütgenbach reservoir, via Büllingen, Zitterwald, Honsfeld, and Buchholz all the way to Hellenthal-Losheim on the German-Belgian border.

Kronenburg Castle village
Further along the route you will have a view of the picturesque Kronenburg, castle vil lage which was first mentioned documented in 1277 . Kronenburg is well worth a detour. On a stroll along the narrow alleys you can admire the picturesque medieval houses and walk around the “Burgbering” which surrounds up to 400 year old houses.
Where once knights, castle men, farmers, and artisans had their home, you will now find art galleries and craft shops. Many well-preserved half timbered houses are still present. An architectural work of art is the parish church of St. John the Baptist, which was built in the 15th century, its vaulted roof is supported by a single central pillar. If you climb to the top you can enjoy a beautiful of the landscape and Lake Kronenburg.
The Kyll Cycle Route also leads you past Lake Kronenburg. Sailors, rowers, surfers, and swimmers enjoy the 27 hector lake, further opportunities for leisurely activities await you at the foot of the dam (playground, miniature golf, roller skating rink, and much more).
