Description

This bike tour is recommended in the spring period. You cycle along the beautiful asparagus fields in Central Limburg and asparagus are only available in the spring, officially from mid-April to the end of June. Enjoy the beautiful landscape and stop somewhere along the way to actually taste those delicious asparagus.

Heaths, forests and asparagus fields
The start and end point of this route is in the middle of nature, near Stramproy. At the start of the route you cycle through the Stramproyse Heide. Later the heaths turn into forests with here and there an open field with asparagus. After just over 8 kilometers you cycle into the center of Stramproy and from there you cycle with a curve to Tungelroy. You cycle over the famous Tungelroyse stream that starts in Belgium and flows into the Maas.

Mill St Anna
In Tungelroy you pass the corn mill St. Anna. This mill was built between 1875 and 1876 to replace two water mills. In front of the mill was a warehouse where first a suction gas engine and later a diesel engine was placed. A sawmill was also established next to the mill. In 1991 the mill was sold and the warehouse was separated from the mill. Over the years, the mill has been repaired many times.

Mill of Industry
Other mills you will encounter during your tour are Molen de Nijverheid in Stramproy from 1903 and the St. Jansmolen dating from 1804. Mill de Nijverheid is now located in the middle of the residential houses. In the past, all those buildings were not there yet and then the windmill could catch wind more easily. Nevertheless, the mill is still kept running by volunteer millers. Pay a visit to the mill and see how the grinding of grain is done.
