Access to start point:The Weser dam is signposted from Eupen

The Weser dam is, quite rightfully, a major tourist destination of the Eupen area. Access is well signposted, and the huge parking area is testimony to the popularity of the area. We were there in the middle of the week in late August, and avoided the weekend run. As soon as you leave the vicinity of the dam, traffic reduces and we were to ourselves during most of the hike.

Soon after the start, you leave the main tarmac trail for a herdpath that leads along the shore of the lake. The trail is NOT signposted. Except in times of exceptionally high water, the trail should be passable for most of the time. In August 2018, after a long dry period, the trail was about 3 Meter above the water line. The trail along the water’s edge is the most interesting part of the hike.
