Today we have cycled 20 miles out from Aachen along a cycle route built on an old railway called the Vennbahn. It crosses in and out of Germany and Belgium and ends in Luxembourg. We cycled as far as Roetgen, had a picnic and are now cycling back. We stopped at Raeren to check out the old signalling equipment and rolling stock. In particular a line of old engines that look like mini class 20s and a vertical boiler steam shunter. We are now at Kornelimunster where the abbey claims to have various relics (mostly saints heads but also half of Jesus’s shroud and a cloth used to wipe his feet) which can be displayed out of a small window!
