Cycling route Maasduinen National Park
Elsteren, Wellerlooi, Arcen
The unique nature reserve De Maasduinen National Park was created by the interplay of humankind, wind and water. Human beings have always shaped nature according to their own wishes: by cutting down trees for farmyards or planting them for wood production. Due to the last ice age a strong westerly wind took sand with it to form the specific river dunes here. Water had free rein here, so in some places sand and gravel were deposited, while in other places sand and gravel were carried away by the stream. All this together created a unique nature reserve where the caretakers (municipality of Bergen, Limburg Landscape Foundation, Forestry Commission and private owners) take care of maintenance and protection. Start and finish your bike route at Restaurant Off Course in Geijsteren, where you can enjoy delicious food and drinks and also enjoy a magnificent view!
