Round Cuijk and Maasheggen

  • The Netherlands
  • North Brabant
  • Cuijk
  • 67.71 km (Approximately 03:58 u)
  • Cycling route 1194881

Your cycling route starts at IJs & Spijs in Haps, one of the best ice cream parlors in the Netherlands. And that in a tiny village in Brabant! In Haps you can see the neo-Gothic Saint Nicholas Church from 1899. Further on you pass the Mariamolen, a monumental hexagonal flour mill from 1802. After that, the Saint Martin Church and the solitary medieval church tower of Cuijk come closer and closer. Cycling along the Maas is wonderful. In the eighteenth century, fishermen complained that their nets got caught on objects at the bottom of the Meuse: this turned out to be a Roman bridge. Here you will also find the unique Maasheggen landscape with its ancient oaks and hawthorns. You cycle back through a succession of nature reserves. In the Sint Anthonisbos it is a quiet drive between Scots pines and deciduous trees.

Pay attention; at the starting point you can use the parking lot on the church square (80/90 places).

IJs & Spijs is one of the best ice cream parlors in the Netherlands. Enjoyment is central here, relax and wonder in a tiny village in Brabant, in Haps. Ice cream and chocolate are made here with passion and love, usually slightly different from all the others. The Master Ice Cream Maker is better known here as an ice cream wizard. Haps is a nice base or stopover in the triangle Cuijk, Mill and Boxmeer, in Northeast Brabant. A beautiful and authentic area to explore by bike or on foot!
