Walking through South Limburg means: completely relaxing! Moreover, it sometimes seems like you are abroad! The starting point of this route is Buitenplaats De Vief Heringe in Sittard. The country estate is exactly on the border between city and nature: a perfect place to enjoy these two extremes. Enjoy a snack or a drink on the terrace or inside - before or after your walk. Then you can put on your walking shoes for a lovely walk in the Limburg hilly landscape. You walk through the Stammenderbos, a sloping forest on the northern slope of the Geleenbeek valley. A Geleenbeek flows at the foot of the forest. If you want some spice in your walk, you have come to the right place in this hilly landscape.

Eating in an old church may sound a bit crazy, but it is actually very special and surprising. Experience it for yourself at brasserie Abshoven on the outskirts of Munstergeleen. This church is the only remnant of a monastery complex that was empty for years. The old elements of the church are beautifully combined with cozy furniture in this brasserie. This creates a special and cozy atmosphere. Enjoy a nice cup of coffee, a beer or something tasty from the kitchen. How about a piece of homemade flan, soup, sandwiches, salads or a hot meal for dinner? That will certainly taste after a long bike ride or a walk. When the weather is nice you can settle on the terrace behind the church. On the terrace you can enjoy a snack and a drink with a view of the Absbroekbos. The terrace is sheltered by a piece of ruin that remains of the monastery.
