Hiking trail Herzogenrath - Alsdorf (10.2 km)

Last Sunday I walked a walking route of 10.2 km. This time the route came from the site routeyou.com. Over the past few weeks we have walked several routes that were usually followed by a.d.h.v. an itinerary. That doesn't always work smoothly with us, especially if they are older routes so this time we chose a route that is indicated on a map without further descriptions except for the start and end point.

The route looked like this on the photo. We wanted to try this way because sometimes a description can be quite tricky. Especially for my love who wants to walk from point to point and some descriptions give so much extra information that it can be confusing. Sometimes they seem like quests, also fun but not always efficient.

At the starting point of this route there are many parking spaces so if you come by car then that is ideal. Also, the starting point is easy to reach by public transport. A train stops in Herzogenrath and from the station to the starting point is not very far. You can also take the bus to. If you get out somewhere at the center then it is easy to walk so that too should be no objection..

We walked to the starting point but did not reach the starting point but a little further along the route and then decided to continue the route from there.

We scanned the route with the code at the top right and that was a great tool on the way as there was no signage.

The other routes did not have this and in itself this was nice, especially for my dear who still likes some support while walking. On the first part we met many hikers. Pretty many people walking the dog, couples and families. It is also a nice area with lots of benches where you can relax.. Here at most benches there were also trash cans. I liked it actually and because they were so massive here I realized that you don't see this very often nowadays. I didn't take a lot of pictures this time. But I will share the pictures I took here so you can get an impression of the area. You can see on the map that you walk a lot past ponds and you also follow a small river. You walk past houses every once in a while, but those are just small pieces. The route is easy to pass and most of the you walk on paved roads or roads or well-laid roads. You do not often walk on forest roads, although there are, but also here without any real bumps on the way. So the untrained hiker can walk this route just fine. The forest paws are sometimes narrow and therefore not suitable for wheelchair users.

Along the way, you will not encounter a lot of sights. A hidden estate and a cappy are, I think, the highlights.

But the environment is really beautiful so it's not that you have nothing to look at. My partner found this one of the most beautiful routes we have walked lately. I don't entirely agree with that, but I do understand where this came from. It had something surprising every time and it was varied and that made the route very nice.

At some point you cross a busy road and then you would walk through the Tierpark. Because of covid19 this piece was closed along the animals now and we had to find a way around the park. Normally you walk into the park at the back and come out at the front. We did not know that but when we found a way where we could continue the route we discovered the entrance. We have tried to look at the place, neat from behind the ribbons and that park is just a fairly accessible zoo. With playgrounds, traffic garden for children, a pond with a barbecue boat, I think you can go pedal boats etc. Really great it looked and as soon as Covid19 is over we go back to visit the park. Across the street you have barbecue areas, seating areas, covered places where you can play checkers or chess. Really very nice to entertain yourself with possibly children. We saw eateries and closed terraces so really friendly and relaxed from. Within 10 km from where I live and I had no idea.

It's such a shame I didn't know this when the children were younger because I would have spent many days off here with them.

If you continue the route from the Tierpark then you come into a kind of swampy piece and I had the idea that I was walking into the decor of Harry Potter. It had something mysterious and dreamy. You're on when you're here halfway through the route.

Daarna gaat de route terug naar het beginpunt zonder dat je exact dezelfde route loopt. There are very small overlaps. Do you walk at this distance from the houses on the way back you really walk past the houses. The few houses that are on this route that you pass are very nice, so it's pretty nice to see how the people live there. Sometimes I've really been sighting that if you live here, I don't think you can be stressed. So idylic. . . . . . seems delicious.

I was very curious how a route would give birth without a description. But it was fine to do. I myself do not like to constantly walk with a phone in my hand but that was not necessary with this route. I also had a print with me but my partner thought this was a very relaxed way of being on the road and that is also worth something. If you see other routes that we have been running in recent times please check below.
