On this route, groundwater is stored deep in the soil under a typical South Limburg landscape with hillside forests, (dry) valleys, standard orchards and rolling fields.

The marl-rich subsoil is porous in many places; the groundwater is therefore sensitive to what happens above ground. That is why the groundwater protection areas here are the largest in all of Limburg. No less than 17% of all drinking water in Limburg is extracted here every year. A large part of South Limburg drinks'Mergellandwater\\\' from the tap.

Enjoy, but responsibly. That means:

  • stay on roads and trails;
  • do not damage plants;
  • take garbage with you;
  • keep the dog on a leash and clean up the poop.
