Kasteel Limbricht (Limbricht Castle) is found deep in the south of Holland in the province of Limburg. It is very near the town of it's namesake, Limbricht and is surrounded by the Limbrichterbos (Limbricht Forest).
The original castle dates back to the 13th century. Once you walk over the drawbridge and through the entrance gate you are greeted by an ancient cobblestone courtyard. Inside you will find an a la carte restaurant and a conference centre.
It's close to Buchten where I was staying with my grandmother so I was able to walk there along the many well marked footpaths. The round trip was probably about 12-15km's and there are plenty of cafes along the way to quench your thirst and ease your hunger pangs.
The Netherlands is famous for biking and there isn't a corner of this small flat country that can't be reached on a pushbike. There are wide and even cycleways in all cities, towns, villages and throughout the beautiful and green Dutch countryside.
They are well sign posted and there are cafes everywhere to stop and quench your hard earned thirst with good strong coffee or even a refreshing cold beer.
