De Maasduinen National Park is a beautiful terraced landscape with lower and higher sandy soils, the Maas valley and a plateau. You should really explore this area by bike. This route takes you through this national park, but also along the other side of the Meuse.

De Maasduinen National Park
In National Park De Maasduinen you cycle through heathland and forest areas with conifers. This vegetation was planted to keep the drifting sand in check. As a result, the sand no longer actively drifts. The heart of the woods and moors is the Hamert estate, as it was called in 1998. The Maasduinen are maintained in a natural way by grazing Galloway cattle, sheep and goats here. If you cycle more towards the German border, the nature reserves become less densely vegetated. The landscape gradually changes from forests to fields and meadows.

Old Inn
The base of this route is Old Inn. On the terrace of this bicycle café you can relax with a cup of coffee or a tasty meal. Do you have enough energy left? Then try route 412139 to explore the area further.

Castle Boxmeer
On this route you will also cycle past Boxmeer Castle Museum. This castle is located on a former island on the Maas and it was built in the fourteenth century. Until 1568, the castle was inhabited by the Lords and Women of Boxmeer. In 1572 an order was given to demolish the castle and the moat was filled in. Later on, two new wings were added to the castle and the castle was eventually preserved. A museum is located in the cellars of the old castle where you can view drawings and models that illustrate the history of the building.
