Description

\\\ 's-Gravenisjes is the most famous district of Voeren. The ribbon village was built next to the small river Voer, and is historically the most important district in the area.

With that everything has been said about the insignificant village. Here you can experience Belgian village life without tourism or frills. Ordinary, cozy and yet authentic! Some religious buildings are well preserved, such as the Onze-Lieve-Vrouwe-Chapel, the Sint-Lambertuskerk and the Steenboskapel. Historically, the castles of Altenbroek and Ottegraven are also well preserved and worth a visit.

The highlight of this bike tour is undoubtedly the former commandery of the Teutonic Order, which was donated by Daniël van Voeren in 1242 when he arrived there. The castle was the commandery of Alden Bielden, where the commander stayed. The complex consists of a main building, a farm, stables and a gatehouse. The oldest part of the fortress is the L-shaped wing, on which a tower adorns. A number of ponds were added in 1885 to the original ring moats around the commandery. Trout, sturgeon and eel were and still are cultivated here.
