Of all the regions in Flanders, the Maasland is the most popular region for cycling. No wonder, because the landscape around the river Meuse is really delightfully flat.

Cycling, naturally

You can cover a lot of kilometres along the banks of the river Meuse. But don’t go too fast or you might miss some wonderful views. You can also watch the grazers that help manage the natural environment. The ferries are an easy way to cross the river, and then you are suddenly in a far-off foreign land - the Netherlands! The two countries’ cycle routes connect perfectly so you won't get lost.

String of Meuse villages

You don’t visit the Meuse villages for their bustling centres or the variety of things to do when you go out; you go to experience the peace and quiet and the beauty of a picturesque village. The church clock in the background is the only sound you will hear. It’s never been so easy to combine culture and nature in a single day.
