Description

Between Weert and Roermond is a quiet and green area full of small towns and beautiful sights that date back to days long gone. This route takes you along several Maasplassen and centuries-old castles and mills around the towns of Heel and Heythuysen.

Sights from days long gone
From Neeritter you cycle to Hunsel and then on to Grathem. Here you can take a look at the Grathemermolen and Groot Buggenum castle. The Grathemermolen was built here in the thirteenth century. In 1915, the mill was converted into a turbine mill and the mill's current water wheel is recreated from the original wheel. Groot Buggenum Castle was built later than the adjacent mill, in 1419. The original castle is no longer there, because Groot Buggenum was rebuilt in the sixteenth century on the foundations of the old castle. Then you cycle further through Heel, Overhaelen, Baexem, Ell and Haler, among others. Other beautiful sights on the route are Heel Castle, Nederhoven Castle, Beegden Castle, St. Lindert Windmill, Horn Castle and Uffelsemolen.

Brasserie 't Pastorieke
The start and end point of this route is formed by Brasserie 't Pastorieke in Neeritter. Here you can enjoy a high tea or something else tasty. From the rectory you can also follow route 530038.

Nederhoven estate
Between Heel and Beegden you cycle over the Nederhoven estate. This estate has a beautiful castle that was built in 1614. You will also find several outbuildings here that were built around 1750. For the rest, the estate consists of forests with old lime trees, oak and beech trees and beautifully landscaped gardens. If you want to stretch your legs, get off your bike for a walk around the estate.
