Description

The vast Maasheggen landscape between Cuijk and Maashees is unique in the Netherlands. Nowhere else are so many hawthorn and blackthorn hedges to be seen so well preserved and abundantly flowering. These shrubs grow into each other thanks to human intervention. The thorny hedges served as a boundary between plots and yielded wood. This hedge braiding already existed in Roman times: Julius Caesar described his annoyance about it, it took him a lot of effort to pass these green walls with his army! Also special: every year the Dutch Maasheggen Braiding Championship is organized. In the middle of the Maasheggen, Sint Agatha has the oldest, still inhabited monastery in the Netherlands. Grab a seat along the way for a nice lunch at Restaurant de Baronie in Boxmeer! Back in Cuijk you can discover the Roman history of this place.
