A lovely forrest across the street of the bed and breakfast and open fields in the near surroundings, you almost automaticly get invited for nice walks or bike rides. Enough marked walking and bike routes closeby. Among which for example the Vennbahn bikeroad, From Aken to Troisvierges, this is Europe best bikeroad in 2014. The maximum rise is 2% so suitable for everybody. The tour is on a former traintrack including the trainbridges and tunnels.

Winter in the Eifel
Also in the autumn and the winter it is worth while to visit the Eifel. In the autumn the forest is very beautiful with al the different colour leafs. In the winter there are several possibilities for wintersport. Across the street in the forest there is a cross-country sking track of 8 kilometers. And 5 minutes down the road there is a little ski area Weißer Stein with a skilift and lift for tobbogan. And there are also an other 17 kilometers of cross-country sking track. So the perfect place for a little snow fun not so far from home
From the end of March (depending of the weather) every year the daffodils are bloming at the Belgium/German border, so here in the Olefvalley as well. The trails to the daffodilfields are all starting from the car park Hollerather Knie, 500 meters from our house.
History and cities
For those who are interested in the Second World war, there is enough to discover. The battle of the Bulges started on 16-12-1944 here at the German-Belgium border. There are still remains of that visible, and they still find things out of that era.
Between an hour and an hour and a half drive you can be in the big cities as Aken, Cologne, Liège, Luxemburg and Trier. Closer by you have little historic villages of Monschau and Bad Münstereifel and in Belgium Malmedy
