This walk takes you through the historic heart of Baarlo, a picturesque village in Limburg. You also walk along the banks of the Maas and through the forest at De Berckt Castle.
In Baarlo you can admire some sights. On the Markt, for example, you can see the St. Peter's Church from 1952. Its predecessor from 1878 was destroyed in 1944 by the retreating Germans. You also walk past the Kasteelmolen, a watermill from 1700 on the Kwistbeek. On the Maasstraat you will see the former Sint-Jozefklooster from 1905. In the outlying area you will pass De Berckt. The original thirteenth-century castle was demolished in 1830 and rebuilt in Italian style.
Along the Meuse
The route also takes you along the banks of the Maas for a while. Here you have beautiful views over the water. On the other side you can see the villages of Steyl and Tegelen. You can enjoy the soothing tranquility here, just like in the nearby forest that lies just behind De Berckt.
