Roermond and its surroundings
Nationaal Park De Meinweg
De Meinweg is a beautiful piece of nature of approximately 1800 hectares. It is a beautiful area with very changing landscapes and unique flora and fauna in an oasis of peace. It is the ideal way to relax or to be active. The park is located in the easternmost corner of Central Limburg and is enclosed on three sides by Germany.
About the area
The Meinweg is a unique terraced landscape, with steep transitions between the terraces. Geologically, this is extremely special for the Netherlands. The terraces were created over the course of tens of thousands of years as a result of the erosion of De Maas and shifts in the earth's crust along the three fault lines that run through the area.
In the Meinweg area, forests, heathland, fens and stream valleys provide a varied landscape. Within Limburg, De Meinweg is the only area where the adder still occurs, which is why the adder appears in the De Meinweg logo.
