The Maasplassen, a vast series of interconnected lakes, offers an ideal spot for water sports enthusiasts. Take in the stunning beauty of Limburg’s nature by going on a canoe trip with Kayak Maasland! There’s no better way to soak in the splendor of this region than gliding along the water, surrounded by breathtaking views. Along the way, you’ll be joined by fascinating companions such as herons, horses, and majestic swans.

Roermond’s Historic City Centre

By all means, walk across the charming cobblestone streets, visit the Munsterkerk, and admire the elegant Stadhuis in the historic heart of Roermond. This city is often described as “bourgondisch” or “Burgundian”. Referring to its reputation for a rich lifestyle centered around good food, drink, and enjoyment. The term “Burgundian” originates from the historical region of Burgundy in France, which was known for its love of fine food, wine, and celebrations. Spend an afternoon & evening exploring the historic streets that are filled with lively terraces and cute boutiques.
