Description

Just outside Venray is Landgoed Geijsteren, a former manor that has been in the possession of the same noble German family for two centuries. You can walk here peacefully, in the beautiful nature you walk past some historic buildings.

Ancient Chapel
Landgoed Geijsteren is a varied nature reserve with woods, meadows and fields. The area is intersected by the stream valley of the Oostrumse Beek. This brook used to be an arm of the Meuse, but has now partially landed. You walk past the Gothic Saint Willibrord Chapel from 1543. Court hearings and sacrifices were already held here in the Frankish times. In the chapel there is a statue of Willibrord from the seventeenth century and an altarpiece from the eighteenth century.

Rosmolen
A little further on you walk past De Rosmolen, a water mill from 1667. Despite the name, it has never been a real horse mill. The mill house was damaged in 1944 when the bridge over the stream was blown up. The mill house has been milling again since 2000. Near the mill is a striking carving made of branches from the forest.
