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

Bitter Wald
From the pleasant holiday park Landal De Lommerbergen you drive to Ronkenstein. Because of its eighteenth-century appearance, this hamlet enjoys a protected village view. One of the many wonderful 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 briefly 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 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, it stood in Zaandam from 1614 to 1891.
