Route description[edit]

The Belgian part of the E25 is also denoted as 'Route du Soleil'. This title isn't accepted by France because it isn't the original 'Route du Soleil' connecting Paris and Marseille. The Belgian 'Route du Soleil' is a branch of the original route, connecting Amsterdam and Marseille. This route joins the E25 near Utrecht (NL) towards Metz (F).
