Enjoy a lovely walk along the flat banks of the Maas? Then come to Eijsden in Limburg for a nice detour. And look out, because the old part of Eijsden is rich in historic buildings.
Above Eijsden you walk through the Eijsder Beemden, a nature reserve under development. Here you will see a mosaic of grasslands, ponds, willow forests and an old standard orchard. On the horizon are the wooded hills. Closer by you can see a varied flora. In the occasionally quite swampy grasslands, plants such as true cruciferous thistle and double chalice grow. Caterpillars of the queens page live on the wild carrot, during the season you can see this largest butterfly of the Netherlands fluttering here.
The southwestern corner of Eijsden enjoys a protected village view. The streets here originated as side streets of a medieval road. There are many monumental mansions, such as on the old Maaskade and the Diepstraat. At the Vroenhof you pass the Sint-Christinakerk. The marl tower of this church dates from the fourteenth century. At Heerlijkheid Breust you can enjoy a fresh beer and a delicious meal with a view of the centuries-old St. Martin's Church.
The route also takes you over the peninsula L\\\'Illal. From the beginning of 2017, this 15-hectare area will be regarded as the newest piece of the Netherlands. L\\\'Illal is exchanged for a piece of Dutch territory that is surrounded by Belgium on the left bank of the Meuse. L\\\'Illal is a rugged piece of nature where trees grow and rare plant species can be found. Such as the small and large teasel, eyebright and wild marjoram. You can also spot goldfinches. And of course the many ships that sail on the Maas in this beautiful area. Do you also want to explore Haspengouw or some regional castles from Heerlijkheid Breust? Then cycle route 147911 and 147910.
