Description

This cycling route around Weert takes you on cycle paths and well-maintained, mostly quiet country roads through the untouched nature of the border area between the Netherlands and Belgium. The starting point of the route is at the reconstruction of the kollergang of a late medieval Rosoliemolen in Weert. Until the 1950s, the original mill stood here to provide the residents of Weert with oil.

You will partly cycle through the cross-border Kempen-Broek landscape. This nature reserve is even more extensive than the Hoge Veluwe and it is located between Cranendock, Weert, Leudal and the Belgian border municipalities of Hamont, Bocholt, Bree and Molenbeersel-Kinrooi. In 2014, the region around Weert was voted the greenest region in the world.

Along the way you will come across many beautiful sights that are worth a visit. Many of these spots testify to the old agricultural character of the region, such as the old monumental long gable farms that are so characteristic of this region. You will also find road crosses, old chapels, nine windmills, three watermills and a hydroelectric power station. Some of these windmills are open regularly and are often still in operation today. Would you like to visit one of the mills? Then take a look at the mill agenda of the Weerterland Windmill Foundation. There you can see which mill is open and when.
