This 13.9-kilometre walk is part of the Liberation Route Europe walking route.

Nederweert at the front

The theme of the route is Nederweert - two months at the front. 
Operation Market Garden provided a narrow strip of liberated territory in the east of Noord-Brabant and the far west of Midden-Limburg in the second half of September 1944. Weert and most of Nederweert fell exactly in this strip. The German troops retreated behind the Wessem-Nederweert Canal and the Noordervaart canal. From here they shelled the Allies relentlessly and caused great damage with artillery fire.
Well-armed and skilfully led combat units allowed the Germans to regain the initiative and launch a counterattack in late October. By quickly moving troops from other parts of the front to the Limburg battlefield, the British brought the German advance to a halt. Nederweert was eventually completely liberated on 15 November.
