Experience how great cycling can be in South Limburg. On this cross-border cycle route you get the best of three countries!
Cycling through the beautiful hills from the Netherlands to Germany, Belgium and back again in one afternoon – you can only do that from Limburg. Park your car at one of the many car parks in Vaals and follow this special, cross-border cycle route through intersections 95-94-96-97-89-87-86-90-92-1-91-5. On the way, you'll find numerous terraces where you can have a cup of coffee, one even more beautifully surrounded by nature than the next. Of course you will also visit the Border Triangle with its activities for the whole family. You will be amazed by the glorious countryside, the beautiful panoramic views and of course the many terraces where you can take a break.

If you have any comments about the route, please report them to routepunt@visitzuidlimburg.nl. You can order a complete cycle intersection map showing all the South Limburg intersections in this region from www.webshop.visitzuidlimburg.nl.

The cycle route network makes cycling in South Limburg even more fun. No maps on your handlebars or navigation systems, but clearly numbered intersections. Just follow the intersection numbers you write down on a small note. It's almost impossible to get lost, because the green and white signs can be found wherever you need them, no matter which way you go. The intersections have overview boards, so you will always have an overview and can easily change your route.
