Station
6063 NP Roerdalen
http://www.roerdalen.nl/geluksplekken

The romantic club path across the marsh of the Red Brook. Crystal clear water and a red bottom full of iron. Do you see the water stream coming out of the ground and flowing into the stream? The stream forms the natural border between the Netherlands and Germany. A special plant also grows here, gale. In the past, this was used instead of hops for brewing beer. Gagelbier has recently become available again in Roerdalen. It is a wonderful forest to come with the whole family.

From here you can clearly see how the large neo - Romanesque church is situated on a slope: a church mountain. A wooden church stood on the slope more than 1,000 years ago. The chapel in the valley stands under sky-high weeping willows and beeches. It was destroyed during the Second World War. But the neighborhood has rebuilt the chapel. This was done with a lot of craftsmanship and durable materials: a floor of natural stone, walls of fire stone, hard stone columns, a wrought iron fence and mouse teeth at the top of the side walls. Just sit on the bench and listen to the rustle of the trees

Geluksplek 5 Roerdalen: De Aerdmannetjes van Kasteel Aerwinkel

It seems like the dream domain for good-natured and helpful Aerd males. With a little imagination you can see traces of it everywhere. After the gate, turn right into the forest (towards junction 38). Walk to the water and the bridges for a nice view of the castle. You get a real fairytale feeling with the beautiful nature and the turrets of the castle.

The Cathedral is an ancient beech forest where the trees resemble the pillars of an imposing church. This impressive piece of nature can be found in the Munnichsbos or Monnikenbos. This is an ancient natural forest. A paradise for mosses, ferns, mushrooms, woodpeckers and squirrels. As if you hear the monks sing and you are a gnome in this giant forest. You can find the cathedral of trees where the road Roskam turns into a dirt road, the road from Sint Odili? Nberg to Waldfeucht.

Geluksplek 22 Roerdalen: de Gelukspijlers van de Fietsbrug

Oheweg
6077 ES Roerdalen
http://www.roerdalen.nl/geluksplekken

The bicycle bridge is literally the center of Roerdalen. Cycling makes people happy. Dutch young people are the happiest in the world. The bicycle is a good symbol of it. Nowhere in the world are there as many cycling youngsters as in the Netherlands. High 'self-steering ability' is a basic condition for happiness. This is based on three pillars: autonomy, competence and connectedness. This is the ideal place to reflect on these happiness pillars. Looking at the current, the water level and the color of the Rudder.

Basiliek van de H.H. Wiro, Plechelmus en Otgerus

6077 AA Roerdalen

The origins of the basilica of the HH Wiro, Plechelmus and Otgerus go back to the eighth century when the priests Wiro, Plechelmus and Otgerus founded an abbey. Since then, the building has been restored several times, including by Pierre Cuypers between 1880 and 1883. A major restoration took place after the Second World War. On their departure from Odili? Nberg and other villages in the area, the German troops blew up tall buildings, such as this basilica. The Germans wanted to prevent the Allies from using the buildings as viewing points. After the war, the church was restored.
