Height Profile


Your walking route starts at Hotel Restaurant de Baronie. Boxmeer is surrounded by meadows and the Maasheggen and Brestbosch nature reserves, a beautiful area for a walk. First you walk to the Schraalzand. This rugged and overgrown nature reserve was once a former wetland area where trees were planted at the end of the nineteenth century. Then you cross to the Maas with the authentic Maasheggen, a true cultural heritage. Nowhere else will you find so many hawthorns and blackthorns together. Thanks to human intervention, these shrubs grow into each other. The spiky hedges served as boundaries between plots and provided wood. This hedge weaving already existed in Roman times: Julius Caesar described his annoyance about it, it took him a lot of effort to pass these green walls with his army!
