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 municipality of Maasmechelen is leading the way in a white crocus route to commemorate the thread of death, which will plant no fewer than 35,000 bulbs of the 125,000 bulbs that will now go into the ground in October 2018. You can find various reconstructions on this route, including for FKP 17 at the Ulfelseweg and at the Smeetshof(weg) at the Weerterweg (Bocholt) and at Grenspaal 174 between FKP 216 and 38, but also for the Kluis itself.
Tip: The bicycle ferry at FKP 22 to FKP 1 to Kaal is out of service in the winter, then cycle here from FKP 22 (the Spaenjerd/VVV point) to 21 to continue the route there. You will miss Thorn, Wessem and Maasbracht.
