Description

The cycle route starts from the historic center of Gennep. You cycle towards Heijen along the beautiful floodplains of the Maas. Via the nature reserves De Lange Ven in Heijen and the Looierheide in Gennep, the route continues in the direction of Ottersum. Here you cycle past the Roepaen estate with a former monastery complex, which now functions as a conference hall and cultural center. The estate, measuring 5 hectares, is used as a location for group activities.

Via the village of Ven-Zelderheide you pass the beautiful Reichswald. The Reichswald is one of the largest nature reserves in the Lower Rhine and was a popular hunting ground in the Middle Ages for imperial visitors to the Valkhof in Nijmegen, but also for the dukes of Gelre and Cleves. Permanent residents of this forest area are roe deer, red deer and wild boars.

The route ends via the historic Genneperheide again in the city center of Gennep, which is full of sights. Discover on Ellen Hoffmannplein, the unique mosaic square, why Gennep is also called Ceramic City. Also take a look at the old City Hall of Gennep. In the year 2000, a pair of storks settled here, which still manage to find their way back to Gennep every summer and raise the little ones there.
