Cottessen nature reserve is the ideal environment for a wonderful day of walking through the vast, silent forests and farmlands of South Limburg. Put on your walking shoes and enjoy the nature of beautiful Limburg!

Walking in South Limburg
During the entire walk you have beautiful views over the Limburg hilly landscape and you pass half-timbered houses. Get to know this area and you know that you don't have to look any further for walking in beautiful surroundings.

Cottessen Reserve
Southeast of Epen there is a beautiful nature reserve for walking: the Cottessen reserve. The area consists of a half-timbered farm with outbuildings and grasslands, located on a slope between the Belgian border and the Vijlenerbos. The area around Cottessen is ideally suited for walking. This part used to be a poor region in Limburg and as a result the old half-timbered houses have still been maintained. You will also walk past this during the route. Cottessen has 11 national monuments, all of which are half-timbered farms.

Back in time
Time seems to have stood still here. What a special environment to walk around in! The steep hills made this area difficult to access for agriculture and as a result many sunken roads and spring areas have been preserved. The landscape of South Limburg is unique to the Netherlands.


Tour tip; Hiking with kids! Routes up to 5 km are ideal
