Description

Cycle along the edge of De Meinweg National Park, a beautiful nature reserve that stretches across the Dutch border and also enriches Germany with a unique terraced landscape with steep transitions. The terraces were created by the erosion of De Maas and shifts in the earth's crust. Two streams flow right through the terraces, which drain the water from the upper plateau. Idyllic forests, vast moors and romantic fens and stream valleys predominate here. It is therefore an extremely varied landscape where you can feast your eyes on. What makes De Meinweg extra special is that it is the only place in the Netherlands where the adder still occurs. The route starts in L?venich, at the parking lot in front of Profile Zweirad-Schmiede"Der Fahrradspezialist\\\". You can have your bike checked for defects and while minor repairs are being made, you can visit the German war cemetery Kriegsgr?berst?tte in L?venich. 441 German soldiers who died in World War II are buried here. When you pick up your bicycle, you will receive a 10 euro discount on your maintenance on presentation of your bicycle discount card. Then you set course for the town of Wassenberg, which forms the gateway to De Meinweg National Park. Historic buildings are well preserved. For example, old city walls surround the city, and narrow streets with beautiful buildings lead to other imposing buildings, such as a beautiful castle. There is plenty to do in Wassenberg and beautiful gardens and parks are proof that Wassenberg is a member of the European Garden Heritage Network. In summer many fun events are organized and in winter the stalls of Advent and Christmas markets are very pleasant to stroll along.
