The church village of Geistingen is located near Ophoven. Many objects from the Paleolithic and Neolithic have been found on the territory of Geistingen. Bronze axes and the presence of Eburons were also found here. In addition, a Roman army camp and Roman graves have been discovered. These finds show that the area has been inhabited since ancient times. Geistingen even probably originated as a Frankish settlement. The village always remained small. Gravel extraction started in 1944, but these activities ended around 2011. A silent witness to the gravel extraction is a huge pond between the Meuse and Geistingen, which was created as a result. This lake is designed for nature and recreation. Near Geistingen you will find the beautiful village of Kessenich. Kessenich is the most northeastern village of Belgium and is just across the border. Just north of Kessenich lies the beautiful nature reserve De Vijverbroek. The area originated as an old meander of the Maas and is approximately 140 hectares in size. Almost two hectares are overgrown with a large alder brook. There is also a lot of willow shrub, swamp fern and marsh marigold. There is also plenty to see for bird lovers. Bluethroat, nightingale, honey buzzard and Eurasian Eurasian falcon are regularly spotted here. The Armenmolen is located one kilometer from the Belgian-Dutch border. It is one of the few remaining water mills on the Ittersebeek. This undershot water mill was used as a corn mill and was built around 1686. The mill was in operation until 1950, after which it became a community building for the Green Cross. Today the mill is used as a residence. The exterior has never been significantly changed and still looks authentic. The route starts and ends at hotel De Spaenjerd. In this cozy hotel you can have a delicious lunch before you start on the route. From sandwiches to sandwiches and bouncers, everything is equally delicious here. You can also eat well at De Spaenjeerd after the bike ride. If you book an overnight stay at the hotel, you can use our package with route 133145, which also starts at this hotel.
