A little above Maastricht you can enjoy cycling along the meandering Maas. You cycle through numerous Limburg towns such as Nuth, Geleen, Ulestraten and Elsloo. You can also enjoy beautiful historical sights along the way. This cycle route is made up of 2 loops, of course you can cycle the route in 1 go, but it is also possible to shorten the route.

Sint-Jansgeleen Castle

The first part of the route runs from Munstergeleen to Spaubeek. You cycle past Sint-Jansgeleen Castle. This castle was built in 1567, but today you can only see part of the castle here. The main buildings of the castle were demolished in 1930.
You then continue cycling via Beek and Elsloo to the Juliana Canal. You follow the course of this canal to Westbroek. Then it's time to explore the rolling Limburg landscape again. From Bunde you cycle to Groot Genhout and then continue to Nuth and Schinnen. Along the way you can enjoy panoramic views of the higher parts of the route.

Brasserie Abshoven
From Schinnen you continue to Munstergeleen and Abshoven. Brasserie Abshoven forms the base of this route. At this brasserie, which is located in an old church, you can enjoy a tasty snack and a drink. You deserve that after this active day. From here you can also follow route 533197 if you want to explore the area further.

Castle Gulle
Castle Geulle is located on the edge of Geulle aan de Maas. A castle was built here in the 17th century, which was subsequently demolished in 1847. Today, only the outer bailey of the old castle remains here. The castle is surrounded by a wide moat and you will also find a gatehouse.
