Description

Just below Maastricht you can take a beautiful walk along the Maas. You will also pass through picturesque Eijsden.

Eijsder Beemden
The first meters you walk along the banks of the Pietersplas to the park of Kasteel Oost. Since 1950, the former medieval castle has mainly looked like a country house. In the adjacent Eijsder Beemden you walk through a mosaic of grasslands, lakes, willow forests and an old standard tree orchard. The wooded hills lie on the horizon.

Oost-Maarland
In Eijsden you walk past the former Ursuline monastery. The facade of this monument, dating from 1899, was designed by the famous architect Pierre Cuypers. Further on is the Sint-Martinuskerk: the late Gothic marl tower dates back to 1500. At Heerlijkheid Breust you can grab a terrace for a meal or coffee with flan. You walk through the countryside with fruit orchards to Oost-Maarland, where you will see some ancient farms.
