Walking from Simpelveld
The starting point of this walking route is Bungalowpark Simpelveld, which is located in the middle of the rolling South Limburg landscape. Spend a cozy night in one of the bungalows and be awakened in the morning by the sound of birdsong. At the associated restaurant you can enjoy a delicious Burgundian snack and a drink, such as typical Limburg sour meat.
Sightseeing en route
Simpelveld is located on the so-called Miljoenenlijn, the railway line that was built in 1934 for the transport of coal from the mines. Today, the railway is still used as a tourist attraction. There is a steam train of the Zuid-Limburgse Stoomtrein Maatschappij and that has ensured the growth of Simpelveld. On the way you can take a rest at Herberg de Bernardushoeve in Voerendaal or at Brasserie Eyserhof in Eys.
