Roermond and its surroundings
Nationaal Park De Meinweg
De Meinweg has a unique, naturally terraced landscape, with steep rock walls rising between the terraces. This is, geologically speaking, exceptional for the Netherlands. The terraces were formed over tens of thousands of years, through erosion by the River Maas and shifts in the earth's crust along the three fault lines that run through the area.
Woods, heath land, fens, and streams tumbling through small valleys create a varied landscape in De Meinweg. De Meinweg is the only place in Limburg where adders can still be found. The local snake has been included in the Meinweg logo to celebrate this fact.
