Until the 1950's the original mill stood here to supply the inhabitants of Weert with oil. You'll partly cycle through the cross-border landscape of Kempen-Broek. This nature reserve is even more extensive than the Hoge Veluwe and lies between Cranendonck, Weert, Leudal and the Belgian border municipalities Hamont, Bocholt, Bree and Molenbeersel-Kinrooi. several years ago, the region around Weert was voted the greenest region in the world.
