The Montfort castle is currently partly ruin and partly a visitor center. It was built around 1260 by Hendrik van Gelre on a ridge in the watery Vlootbeekdal. Thanks to its location, the polygonal ground plan and thick natural stone walls, this most southern stronghold of the Duchy of Gelre was practically impregnable. During the Disaster Year of 1672, the French troops of King Louis XIV managed to blow up the castle. Parts of the castle were then inhabited until the twentieth century.

Geluksplek 4 Roerdalen: De Kathedraal van het Munnichsbos

Roskam
6077 NK Roerdalen
http://www.roerdalen.nl/geluksplekken

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.
