The ground at the stream is quite moist, you can walk between species such as black alder and ash. Further on is the ancient Terborgh Castle. Around the eighteenth century, members of the infamous De Bokkenrijders were locked up in this former moated castle. Now a guest house is located there. You can have a drink or a bite to eat here. Further on you pass the Mulderplas, a former wetland area where the Staatsmijnen once discharged the polluted rinse water that was used to wash the coal. From Brasserie De Muldermolen you walk up the Krekelberg, a more than 100 meters high hill. Above Schinnen you enter the Wolfhagerbos, this poplar and willow forest is intersected by the stream Kakkert. Brasserie Abshoven is the last pit stop you will find on the route.

Gasterij Kasteel Terborgh is hidden in the Geleenbeek valley: a relatively unknown, but absolutely beautiful nature reserve. Reason enough to grab your bike or walking shoes and explore here. At Gasterij Kasteel Terborgh you can warm up on a cold day or drink a cool drink in the summer. Take a seat on the terrace or inside the atmospheric guest house and enjoy sandwiches, salads, soups, tapas snacks and typical Limburg dishes such as sour meat, black pudding and asparagus. Drinking a cup of coffee with a piece of pie is of course also possible.

Eating in an old church may sound a bit crazy, but it is actually very special and surprising. Experience it for yourself at brasserie Abshoven on the outskirts of Munstergeleen. This church is the only remnant of a monastic complex that stood empty for years. The old elements of the church are beautifully combined with cozy furniture in this brasserie. This creates a special and cozy atmosphere. Enjoy a nice cup of coffee, a beer or something delicious from the kitchen. How about a piece of homemade pie, soup, sandwiches, salads or a hot meal for dinner? That will certainly taste after a good bike ride or a walk. When the weather is nice, you can settle down on the terrace behind the church. You can enjoy a snack and a drink on the terrace with a view of the Absbroekbos. The terrace is sheltered by a piece of ruins that remains from the monastery.
