Icon description route Description

This walk in the beautiful Limburg takes you through the Bosland National Park. In October 2023, this area was even awarded the label National Park of Flanders.

You start at the 'Vlinder van Kattenbos' and head towards the Pijnven nature reserve. Here, a diversity of fauna and flora resides in a landscape of colorful heathlands and mysterious fens. You can't help but find peace here.

Along the way, you will also pass a German military cemetery, where about 38,000 soldiers, mainly fallen in World War II, are buried. Here, you can also take a break at Hof ten Vrede.

You can park right at the starting point, and there are also many benches/picnic tables along the way.
