Castle Arcen
The wooded area of North Limburg is an oasis of peace and space and offers many opportunities to discover this area by bike: from the Maasduinen National Park to the Black water near Velden. From Tienray you cycle past heaths, forests, fens and asparagus fields to Broekhuizen, where you cross the Maas with a ferry. Across the street you will find Arcen, known for De Kasteeltuinen. A nice place to get off for a while!

The maas
After your visit to the beautifully landscaped gardens at Kasteel Arcen, you will pass another special historic spot further on: the only completely preserved double fort of the Fossa canal, recognizable by the large earth walls at the border crossing at Lingsfort. After Velden you take the ferry to Grubbenvorst.
