This route takes you on both sides of the border through the beautiful nature of Border Park Maas-Schwalm-Nette. That will be a day of enjoying peace, natural beauty and beautiful cozy villages.

The Roer
The Vlodroppermolen is a real attraction. This watermill dates from 1875 and is located at the place where the Rothenbach flows into the Roer. You drive along the Effelder Waldsee, a beautiful lake. From the picturesque Effeld you drive through the Helpensteiner Bachtal, Oberes Schaagbachtal and Petersholz nature reserve. This area is as vast and varied as the name suggests.

Then you drive a long way through the German Roer Valley. It is wonderfully peaceful here to cycle along the natural banks. You have beautiful views over the meadows and the rippling water. Via the nice Heinsberg you drive back to the Dutch border. In the Annendaalsbos you mainly cycle between fragrant conifers. The almost adjacent Munningsbos is a former estate forest, here grow conifers, oaks and alders. What a beautiful region!
