The Brachter Wald is a special nature reserve just across the border from Roermond. A region where, in addition to beautiful nature, you will also find a rich cultural history.

Brachter Wald
You cycle to Ronkenstein. Because of its eighteenth-century appearance, this hamlet enjoys a protected village view. One of the many beautiful photo opportunities on this route! Further on you cross the border and drive many kilometers through the vast Brachter Wald. You will experience a unique cycling experience here, because there is no motorized traffic in this former ammunition depot! What a silence!

Then you drive into the moist deciduous forests of the Swalmdal. You cross the Swalm, after which you cycle through the coniferous forests of Luzenkamp. At the edge of the forest you will pass Hillenraad Castle: a square moated castle that originally dates from the fourteenth century. What a beautiful environment! De Grauwe Beer is a flour mill on the banks of the Maas, from 1614 to 1891 it stood in Zaandam.
