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

Sights from days gone by
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 current water wheel of the mill has been copied from the original wheel. Groot Buggenum Castle was built later than the adjacent mill, in 1419. The original castle no longer stands, because Groot Buggenum was rebuilt in the sixteenth century on the foundations of the old castle. Then you continue cycling through Heel, Overhaelen, Baexem, Ell and Haler. Other beautiful sights on the route are Heel Castle, Nederhoven Castle, Beegden Castle, St. Lindert Mill, Horn Castle and the 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 delicious. From the rectory you can also follow route 530038.

Estate Nederhoven
Between Heel and Beegden you cycle over the Nederhoven estate. This estate contains a beautiful castle that was built in 1614. You will also find several outbuildings that were built around 1750. The rest of the estate consists of forests with old lime trees, oaks and beech trees and beautifully landscaped gardens. Get off your bike for a walk around the estate if you need to stretch your legs.
