Exiting Germany in Aachen, the Pilgrims Route leads you to the city of Liège, passing through the symbolic place of the "Three Borders" between Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.

After around 10km, you reach the RAVeL 38, where you discover the groves of the Land of Herve, a green and luminous landscape. While leaving the city 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, and of the cultural diversity of Wallonia in cities like Namur and Charleroi.
