Cycling route Pieterpad (part 11)
Wanssum, Venlo, Tegelen
Two friends, Toos and Bertje devised and walked the Pieterpad between 1978 and 1983. A long-distance walking route (500 km) from Pieterburen in northern Groningen to Sint-Pietersberg in southern Limburg in 26 stages that are easily accessible by public transport and where you can stay overnight. The scenery along the way is hugely varied, but equally beautiful everywhere.
Where you can walk, you can also cycle, and we wouldn't be Fietsnetwerk if we didn't set out some great cycling tours for you inspired by the Pieterpad. We made 14 routes totalling almost 1,300 km along all the places on the Pieterpad. We did make circles of them so that you always return to your starting point. This is section 11 and leads from Swolgen to Venlo.
The town of Tegelen is very interesting: besides the many national monuments, you will find castles, monasteries and a botanical garden that used to be used for the monastery. A recommendation is also pottery museum 'De Tiendschuur'. During this route, you will also cycle through Venlo. In and around World War II, many medieval buildings disappeared from Venlo; shot to pieces or demolished. However, many of the houses in the city centre still have a medieval core; take a look at Venlo's town hall, for example.
