This cross-border cycling tour takes you a bit into Germany, but the largest part of the route runs through the Netherlands. You cycle along the Engbertsdijksvenen, a beautiful nature reserve of approximately 1000 hectares with extensive fens, heathlands and fens.

The Engbertsdijksvenen
You can still find raised bogs in the Engbertsdijksvenen. In most places in the Netherlands raised bog has disappeared due to peat extraction, but excavation of the peat remained limited in this area. Many special plants grow there, such as peat fluff, sundew, cranberry and several types of orchids. Birds can also be found in abundance, such as the bluethroat, the crane, the taiga bean goose and the black-necked grebe. On the rest of the bike ride you will pass typical Dutch windmills such as the Grote Geesterse Molen and the Molen van Frans. At the last mill you will find more information about the flora and fauna around the Mosbeek.

Pub and Bed & Breakfast in one
The start and end point of the route is Postelhoek, an eatery and Bed & Breakfast in one. Drink a refreshing drink at the bar or on the terrace after your bike ride or sit down for an extensive dinner. It is also possible to book an overnight stay in a comfortable studio. Then you can rest after a day full of activity.
