You can take a surprisingly beautiful walk around Kessel in Limburg. You will discover the Heldense Bossen, the beauty of the Maas and the centuries-old castle history of Kessel.

Heldense Bossen
At the Clevers Kessel ice cream parlor, first enjoy an ice cream on the cozy terrace before you set off. Soon you will be walking into the Heldense Bossen. Here you walk through a mosaic of pine forests, small-scale arable land, fens and small heaths. Right through the woods are remnants of the old country weather: a raised earthen wall that was planted with thorny bushes to stop itinerant gangs of robbers. What a silence you experience here!

Picturesque Kessel
From the woods you walk to the Musschenberg nature reserve. From the top of the hill you have a beautiful view over the Maas valley. Then the footpath leads you through the meadows. A little later you walk into Kessel on a low-traffic road. Here you can see some monumental buildings and the Church of Our Lady from 1873. Keverberg Castle is a uniquely restored ruin. Here you will learn more about the special history of Baron Frits.
