Walk – visit the garden – walk – drink and snack
Is there anything more relaxing than being active outside with the perspective of a well-deserved healthy snack afterwards? This walk starts and finishes in the picturesque village of Mheer, brings you through the most southern part of Zuid-Limburg and across the border to the Belgian Voerstreek. The route is beautiful. Halfway through your ticket provides you with free entrance into the gorgeous gardens of Maria Kapteijns, where you are even allowed to look inside her renovated, historical farm house Hoeve Schopsheim. The gardens and farm house are known nationwide due to their appearance in the Dutch TV-show BinnensteBuiten. There you will also be offered a cup of coffee or tea. The alternative walking route leads you back to Mheer where you’ll be enjoying a local herbal bitter (Ingendael) and a serving of local, vegetarian ‘bitterballs’ in Taverne in de Smidse. Go veggie!
A lovely walk with a surprising, local, culinary end.
