The Maasstadjes route leads you through the special Maasplassen area with beautiful natural beauty and picturesque villages. Numerous monuments in, among others, the white town of Thorn, Stevensweert and Wessem remind us of the rich history of this area.

The white town of Thorn
The white town of Thorn has a historic core with white houses and many authentic buildings from the 15th to the 19th century, winding streets with original Maas cobblestones, intimate courtyards, floor mosaics and medieval impressions. For over 800 years, Thorn was the capital of a miniature principality, now it is a protected cityscape. Stevensweert is an old fortified town on an island between two Maas arms. The fortress was founded in 1633 by the Spaniards. Especially the special street pattern and the ancient monuments are worth seeing.

History museums
Get to know the turbulent and impressive past of Stevensweert and Ohé en Laak in the Regional Museum. The Visitor Center De Hompesche Molen is located in Ohé en Laak. This highest mill in Limburg is located in a unique and historic location: the Island in the Maas, and also houses a brasserie. You can also visit Steenberg Beach Club, De Spaenjerd or Herberg Stadt Stevenswaert along the way. The Maas and Inland Navigation Museum is located in Maasbracht. Here you will find countless objects that are reminiscent of the past and present of the Maas and inland shipping.
