Exiting Germany, in Aachen, the Pilgrims Route leads you to the city of Liège. Once there you will soon arrive to the symbolic place of the "Three Borders" between Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. After around ten kilometers, you reach the RAVeL, line 38, making you discover the groves of the Land of Herve ('Pays de Herve') in a green and luminous landscape. You can admire and appreciate this beautiful landscape through several viewpoints. While leaving the metropolis of Liège, you can follow the RAVeL of the Meuse and then of the Sambre rivers. This itinerary gives you an overview of the large historic heritage, linked to the river and the post-industrial age of the two valleys on the one hand, and the cultural diversity of Wallonia in cities like Namur and Charleroi on the other. Before arriving in France, the calm atmosphere of the bucolic landscapes of the Haute Sambre will give you an unexpected encounter with the aquatic and bird life.
