This cycling route starts in the historic center of Gennep. You cycle in the direction of Heijen along the beautiful floodplains of the Maas. Via the nature reserves De Lange Ven in Heijen and the Looierheide in Gennep, the route takes you in the direction of Ottersum. Here you cycle past a former monastery complex on the Roepaen estate.  The complex now functions as a conference hall and cultural center. The 5-hectare estate is now used for various group activities.

Via the picturesque village of Ven-Zelderheide you continue cycling along the beautiful Reichswald. This forest is one of the largest nature reserves in the Niederrhein and in the Middle Ages it was a popular hunting ground for imperial visitors to the Valkhof in Nijmegen and the dukes of Gelre and Cleves. The permanent inhabitants of this forest area are roe deer, red deer and wild boars.

Then you cycle through the historic Genneperheide back to the city center of Gennep. This city is full of sights. Discover here on Ellen Hoffmannplein, the unique mosaic square, why Gennep is also called'Keramiekstad\\\'. Also pay a visit to the old City Hall of Gennep. A pair of storks settled here in 2000, which find their way back to Gennep every summer to raise the little ones.
