From Doenrade in Limburg you can take a beautiful bike ride through the hills around Brunssum. You drive over the Brunssumerheide and through the Schinveldse Bossen.

In this rolling landscape you will find a mosaic of grassy fields and fields. Every now and then you pass a characteristic old farm. After a while you cycle onto the Brunssummerheide, the only large heathland area in South Limburg. Here you have beautiful views of heathland and forests. When you hear the 'cowbells' ringing, the shepherd is nearby with his flock of sheep. A nice sight!

You drive through the Schutterspark, a varied city park that is bisected by the Roode Beek. Across the border you drive through the Schinveldse Bossen. You cross briefly into Germany, after which the cycle path is exactly on the border again. On the right lies the valley of the Roode Beek, on the left the marshland of the Leiffender Ven. Watch out for the border posts! You then drive through some picturesque hamlets, such as Bingelrade. What a charming region!
