Icon description route Description

The Maxburg trail takes you past two castles and nature reserve "De Gooren en Krochten" where the Goorloop forms the natural border between Belgium and the Netherlands. Walking along fens and shifting sand ridges you will discover that this is anything but a monotonous area.

This castle is named after its builder Max Van den Berghe, a gin distiller from Antwerp. The building has four salons, 11 bedrooms, a park with a pond and three large gates. The accompanying chapel has four stained glass windows by art and glass painter Jan Huet. At one time there was a school and a brickyard with sixty employees at Maxburg. Restoration of the castle was completed in 1998. Until 2010, Maxburg Castle was a luxury B&B. Now it is purely private. The Maxburgpad and Maxburgdreef owe their names to this castle.

This elongated nature reserve consists of three marshy
landscapes: Waaijenberg, Lange Gooren and the Krochten. They are interspersed with higher, drier areas, coniferous and deciduous forest, open heathland and various streams. The variation of high and low parts, open and wooded areas ensures that the nature reserve has a unique collection of plants and trees. Some of these are even very rare and special.

Sunday, May 21, 2023 by M.V.Too many straight stretches on asphalt. A limited view of heathland but the nodes do not go through this area. More a route for cyclists instead of walkers.
