Description

The Broekhuizerbroek stretches east of Horst. The old Maasmeanders provide a unique piece of nature in the Netherlands. Humid grasslands, swamps and swamp forests, but also peat bogs stretch out in front of you, varying in height and vegetation. Seepage waters arise in the lower parts. In the middle of the meander is a high drifting sand surface called De Hondsberg. You will also cycle through beautiful Venray, which has traditionally been an agricultural community. The name comes from the word'venne\\\' and from'ewes\\\', this is because Venray is located in a place where they used to have to reclaim a lot of ground before it was suitable for to use. After the Second World War, Venray took a new (industrial) path. From 1949 a few small industries established themselves in Venray and since then the industry in Venray has increased significantly. You can also expect two nice sights during your bike ride. Mill Eendracht Makes Power in Meterik is one of them. The round stone belt mill was built in 1898 with money contributed by the inhabitants of Schadijk. The year 1798 on the beard of the grist mill is therefore misleading, but the mill was built with parts from an older mill dating from that year. Eendracht Makes On Saturday afternoons you can buy freshly ground grains in the mill shop. You can also experience the grinding process in the mill. After more than 2.5 hours of cycling, your effort will be rewarded with a beautiful view of De Gun castle farm. On the edge of an old Maasmeander, this beautiful building stands out on the edge of a high terrace. The moat around the former castle is partly still visible. Also note the beautiful brickwork under the eaves.
