Description

Discover the Kempen-Broek Border Park, which navigates between Belgian and Dutch Limburg. In the former border swamps you will now find beautiful fens, mills and streams. A delight for the nature lover!

Wijffelterbroek
After a cup of coffee on the beautiful terrace of Domein Laurabos BV you set off. You start here in the middle of nature, so it is immediately wonderfully green and quiet around you. Here you drive through the Kempen-Broek Border Park. In this area you almost unnoticed cross the border between Belgium and the Netherlands. First of all, you cycle through Wijffelterbroek in the Netherlands, which was once part of a large border swamp. This was a perfect area for smugglers!

Beautiful fens with a picnic bench, such as the one in the corner of Pruiskesweg, invite you to take a break. Then you ride on a beautiful secluded bicycle path along the damp farmland. After a terrace at Nieuw-Vosseven, in the middle of the forest, you drive past the Broekmolen: a beautiful underslag watermill from 1738 on the Abeek. Via a large green loop through Belgium you drive back to your starting point along the green banks of the Zuid-Willemsvaart, a canal from 1826.
