Things to do during Ascension in Limburg

“Dauwtrappen” is a true Ascension Day tradition and a perfect way to experience Limburg. This involves people going out into nature in the early morning, usually during sunrise, to enjoy the peace and serenity of being outdoors. It means getting up early to hike, bike, or just quietly walk around while the world awakens.

Parc Maasresidence Thorn is the perfect place for “dauwtrappen”. The Maasplassen lakes, which form the largest continuous water sports area in the Netherlands, provide a stunning backdrop for this special experience. The calm lakes, surrounded by lush forests and green shores, are perfect for anyone seeking a sense of harmony with nature. The bright sunrise over the calm waters of the Maasplassen forms a fantastic early morning display. The play of light and shadow on the surface of the water creates a unique spectacle of figures and colors.
