Located in the municipality of Leudal, this nature reserve is the calling card of this region. The still visible traces go back far into the last ice age. During gigantic sandstorms, meters high sand dunes were created. Together with deeply carved, ravine-like stream valleys, the area therefore offers relatively large differences in height. This makes the Leudal an attractive and surprising piece of nature.
Located between Thorn and Maastricht, the Meuse meanders stubbornly over a length of 35 kilometers exactly on the border of the Netherlands and Belgium. The RivierPark Maasvallei is a cross-border park with the Meuse river at its core. A number of picturesque villages have developed along both banks of the Meuse, strung together like a string. This combination of nature and culture is what makes the RiverPark Maasvallei area so unique.
In addition to the large nature reserves, the area also has a high number of medium-sized and smaller nature reserves such as the Koningssteen. A beautiful place within walking or cycling distance of the park, located on the Grote Hegge next to the MRT Beach. The Koningssteen houses a special surprise in the shape of herds of Galloway cattle and Konik horses. The area is perfect for beautiful walks. Staying on the trails is not necessary. You can wander around everywhere and enjoy the rugged nature.
