The LF-Fietsclub also wants to contribute to draw more attention to the Death Wire of 14-18. Especially now that there is also an exhibition in the Achelse Kluis about the great explosion of the German ammunition trains at Hamont station in 1918. According to the ED, almost 30 municipalities are participating in this commemoration of the 350 km long electric border barrier in those years. The frontrunner of a white crocus route to commemorate the thread of the dead is the municipality of Maasmechelen, which will plant no fewer than 35,000 pieces. At FKP 217 in front of the entrance to De Kluis you will find the first Death Wire reconstruction, then for the Border in Bergeijk the 2nd, between FKP 22 and 18 and the highway between FKP 2 and 15. On the way back you will also pass memorial points of WWII, after FKP 5 !

Taverne D'n Ouwe Brandtoren

Burgemeester Willekenslaan 2
5541 NA Reusel-De Mierden

This tavern is located in an old'fireworker's house\\\'. The cottage in the woods between Reusel and Postel was built in 1933 as a residence for a foreman of the municipality. The foreman was involved in the afforestation of the moor, so it was convenient for him to live in the middle of nature. In 1999, that house was transformed into the tavern. There used to be a fire tower next to the house. That tower is no longer there, but the tavern is named after this old tower. The restaurant is surrounded by the countless forests of the Kempen. An ideal place for nature lovers who like to explore the area on their hiking boots or by bike. In the tavern you can enjoy a delicious cup of coffee or choose one of the 40 types of special beers and drink it on the terrace. Did you get hungry? Then you are also in the right place. Choose from the various Burgundian meals and eat your fill.

St.-Benedictusabdij - De Achelse Kluis

Achelse Kluis 1
B-3930 Hamont-Achel

The Achelse Kluis has been a place where people settle for prayer and spirituality for centuries. Even today, there are still people who go here for peace and internalization. De Kluis is located on the border of North Brabant (NE) and North Limburg (BE) on the banks of the Warmbeek (BE) / Tongelreep (NE). The beer that is brewed in the Kluis is one of the few that can call itself Trappist beer, because there are only 11 beers that can bear this title.
