Description

A little abroad in the Netherlands: that's what a bike ride through the South Limburg hills feels like. You can enjoy beautiful panoramas on wooded slopes and lovely stream valleys. You will also find a rich cultural history in this region.

Former Lemiers
The picturesque Mechelen, a village where you can see characteristic half-timbered houses and where the church stands on a church hill, is located on this river. The border village of Oud-Lemiers is the next gem on your route. You can see the beautiful twelfth-century Saint Catherine's Chapel here.

Genhoes Castle
On the edge of Voerendaal you pass the estate of Castle Cortenbach. In Valkenburg you cross the Geul again, further on you will see two castles along this river: Schaloen and Genhoes. In Oud-Valkenburg you pass the eleventh-century Johannes de Doperkerk, one of the oldest churches in this region. There is also plenty of cultural history to admire in charming Gulpen, such as the thirteenth-century church tower that once housed the St. Peter's Church.
