Rate route!

Friday, May 14, 2021 by A.V.Still tremendously disappointed from the hike.... the reviews promised varied walk with unpaved paths and we saw 90% paved paths with hardly any fascinating nature.... long fields and straight ahead! Too bad

Sunday, December 13, 2020 by F.L.surprisingly many unpaved trails, atypical actually for a hiking trail in this region. Certainly charmed me!

Sunday, May 24, 2020 by E.S.Very nice hike. Not recommended on very hot days.
Attention, this route goes a bit through the Netherlands! (border closed due to Corona)
