Description

Boxmeer, originally called 'Mere', is known for the beautiful nature that surrounds it. Cycling along the left bank of the Maas you look out over beautiful meadows, which offer great views. The nature reserves Maasheggen and Brestbosch (Brestbos) are also very close. It is wonderful to cycle through the wide landscape or along the banks of the Maas. The area around Boxmeer was already inhabited in Roman times. The surrounding Land van Cuijk and Gelre still left a strong mark on the area, but over the centuries Boxmeer gradually freed itself from the influence of these municipalities: Boxmeer became a free manor. Later the village was able to remain independent and free and now Boxmeer has a lively core and is an important economic force for the east of Brabant.
One of the most interesting sights of the municipality of Boxmeer is Castle Museum Boxmeer. Boxmeer Castle used to be a real fortress and overlooks the Maas. After several sieges and devastation, a noble mansion was built on the site of the castle. In 2013, noble and religious worlds come together in this building, because the history and the prominent former owners are highlighted. The castle museum also paints a good picture of the way of life of the current devout residents.
