EuroVelo 19 Meuse Cycle Route

From Verdun to Charleville-Mézières, on the Tracks of the First World War

Leaving the Verdun battlefield behind, this stage leads you along the left bank of the river, mainly on quiet country roads. If you want to try a different style of pedalling you can take a ride on the Vélo Rail in Forges-sur-Meuse. A bit further downstream, make some time to visit the European Museum of Beer at Stenay. At Remilly-Aillicourt, the Trans-Ardennes cycle route will take you to the town of Sedan and the largest fortified castle in Europe. From Sedan, you can continue on to Charleville-Mézières, the gateway to the Ardennes. The route passes along an old towpath from where you can enjoy varied landscapes with no motorised traffic.
