From the Hariksee the route leads through Sint Anton and Schaag to Breyell. In the Middle Ages, Breyell was located at a junction of trade routes from Cologne to's Hertogenbosch and from Aachen to Nijmegen. Moreover, the port of Venlo was not too far away. That made Breyell a thriving trading place. After Breyell you cycle along the Wittsee with the Krickenberer Seen nature reserve as your final destination.
