Driving through the hilly landscape of the area feels like the ultimate holiday-feeling: rolling green slopes, vast plateaus and Maasvlaktes alternating with characteristic villages, flowing streams in which trout swim, impressive steep slopes and magnificent views. Nowhere else in the Netherlands can a more varied mosaic of landscape elements be found. Moreover, each region has its special characteristic features that keep surprising you within a radius of 30 kilometres. Every season all over again. Cycling, walking and resting in between; it's all possible in the pleasant - and unique - Limburgse Heuvelland. In this five-star awarded landscape, nostalgic villages and authentic towns are hidden between green meadows and colourful standard orchards. The Geul and Gulp, which shaped the landscape centuries ago, now quietly babble on. Enjoy the beautiful panoramas, watch the Geul valley lambs graze and relax on one of the many terraces. Would you rather explore the area on foot or by bike? Then the extensive network of cycling and hiking routes will help.
