Length: 2.9 km

Buggenum, a characteristic Maas village, is built according to a unique street pattern. Due to frequent floods, houses were built only on the high side of the main roads. Hence the saying 'In Böggeme, the boil is baked on one side'. The name of carnival association 'De Halve Gare' is derived from this. At the start of the walk you can see 'Mooi Buggenum', the floodplain area with playground 'het Klauterbrook'. The schoolchildren of Buggenum designed this playground themselves. The area is managed naturally with sheep and cows.

A fine example of how streetscape-defining buildings can be preserved can be seen at Noenever, (no. 10 et seq.) a former square-shaped fruit farm. After the neo-Gothic Maria chapel, you walk via the Holstaat to the Eindpad, one of the escape paths used at high tide. The chapel there is named after the parish patroness Aldegundis. Arriving on Dorpsstraat, the walk continues along a dike. This was accelerated after the floods of 1993 and 1995. The route ends at St Aldegundis church built on a mound. The nave and tower date from after World War II (blown up in 1944). The associated cemetery is enclosed by a retaining wall with steps and gates at the side and back.
