This route takes you through the rich and varied nature around Bree in Belgium. A tour full of forests, stream valleys and Bocholt, a beautiful old town.
The route starts on the outskirts of Tongerlo. In this beautiful old village you will pass St. Peter's Church, which originally dates from the fifteenth century. Further on you drive into the farmlands. You pass through the Hasselterbroek, a nature reserve where you will find a mix of meadows, small forests and heathlands. On the Dutch side of the border you drive through the outskirts of Stramproy with its forests and meadows.
Back in Belgium you drive through the Abeek valley. A picturesque landscape of expansive grasslands and old farms where you can make miles in peace. In Bocholt you can admire the Saint Laurentius Church from 1476. The marlstone tower was moved almost ten meters by rails in 1910 in order to enlarge the church. The inhabitants of Bochol owe their nickname Torenkruisers to this. You can contact Stad Bree for more information about this region.
