The serpentine belt on my 2001 Beetle loops around the outside of the large pulley closest to the firewall, at the bottom, then goes around the outside of the forward lower pulley, then crosses to the inside of the one right above the forward lower pulley, then loops over the outside of the alternator pulley at the top front side, then goes inside under the tensioner pulley, and back down to the outside of the big rear pulley.
I hope that description makes sense. A picture would work a lot better, but I don't have an easy way to post it. Also, I know you asked about the '99 Beetle, but I assume its routing is the same as the 2001 (which is the one I have).

SOURCE: Poulan mower throwing the belt.
1) Remove the cover on the top of the belt and
remove the belt from the transmission pulley
2) Lean the mower back on its handle and secure it
with whatever you have that will keep it there while
you work on it, any heavy object will do
3) Remove the blade bolt, the blade, the blade
adapter and the plastic belt guard from the bottom
You should now be able to remove the belt
4) While you have the belt off, closely inspect the
pulley on the engine shaft, they sometimes get
grass built up in the groove and this will cause
the belt to run off and also wear prematurely.
Hope this helps you out
