The route is a combination of two short hiking routes that are connected to each other. The route in Ohé en Laak can be connected to a route through the fortified town of Stevensweert, and vice versa. The route follows the hiking junction system, namely 62-61-21-51-50-10-21-61-30-31-32-33-34-40-35-62. You can start the hiking route at any point along the route. You will walk the route clockwise. In Stevensweert, you can deviate from the route to visit the beautiful historic center and grab something to eat or drink. You will also find two interesting stories on the Archeo Route there.
