The varied Premium hiking trail"Galgenvenn\\\" leads you through impressive nature - sometimes on the German side, then on the Dutch side. If you start at restaurant Galgenven in a southerly direction, you will first pass through the enchanting border forest. The idyllic Sonsbeck Ven and the beautiful Lange Ven together form the Heidemoore nature reserve.

You continue through a forest of tall trees to the scenic gravel pit which lies in the middle of a landscape that has been returned to its natural state. Sky-blue lakes are very attractive for recreation. In a northerly direction you come via narrow paths along the Meuse slope in the nature reserve"Schlucht\\\" with a magnificent view of the Meuse valley. From there you reach the Dutch nature reserve Holtmühle and the open heathland"Hühnerkamp\\\". You reach the starting point again through an oak avenue and past giant sequoias, streams and the flax pits.


North Rhine-Westphalia is just over the Dutch border, about two hours from the Randstad. This beautiful region is perfect for short active holidays with something for everyone. From lively and historic cities to a sublime cultural offer and varied natural landscapes. With the 50,000 km of hiking trails and 14,000 km of cycle paths in North Rhine-Westphalia, you can at least get ahead.
