From Bergeijk you set course for Belgium. Cycling through the wooded cultural landscape immediately puts you in a good mood. Just before Lommel you pick up the Bocholt-Herentals canal. At junction 228 you will pass Joe\\\'s Bridge. In 1944, the bridge served as a springboard for the ground offensive of Operation Market Garden. After a few kilometers you turn off at Neerpelt and drive through the woods west of Achel. Just before bicycle junction 217 you can admire the buildings of St. Benedictusabdij - De Achelse Kluis. In the Netherlands you will discover one of the most beautiful parts of the route: the cycle path through the Malpie nature reserve. You drive through a mix of fens, forest and drifting dunes. Got an appetite? Enjoy a regional tasting or regional indulgence back at Regional restaurant De Hofkaemer!

Regional restaurant de Hofkaemer in Bergeijk is known for its regional culinary delights from the Burgundian Kempen. Here we work in a contemporary way with regional products, preferably seasonal. Asparagus, strawberries and game can always be seen on the menu here when the time is right. This is really a place to keep coming back to, also because of the menu that changes every three months. Try a regional tasting or a regional treat, where you will only be served regional products - after that you can get back on track as a walker or cyclist!

Sights

St.-Benedictusabdij - De Achelse Kluis

Achelse Kluis 1
B-3930 Hamont-Achel
http://www.achelsekluis.org/

The Achelse Kluis has been a place where people settle for prayer and spirituality for centuries. Even today, there are still people who go here for peace and internalization. De Kluis is located on the border of North Brabant (NE) and North Limburg (BE) on the banks of the Warmbeek (BE) / Tongelreep (NE). The beer that is brewed in the Kluis is one of the few that can call itself Trappist beer, because there are only 11 beers that can bear this title.
