One of the most controversial...
One of the most controversial parts of Dutch railhistory has taken place in the Southern part of Limburg. It concerned the trajectory Maastricht-Aachen. In the late 20's (of the 20th century) a 12,5 km stretch of this trajectory had a total cost of 12 million guilders. Therefore it's named milliontrajectory. In 1988 this trajectory was cancelled. But because the train goes through such a beautiful landscape a couple of people started the Zuid Limburgse Stoomtrein Maatschappij. Throughout the year they use dieseltrains and steamtrains on this trajectory. See www.zlsm.nl for more details.

WALKING & BIKING
Lovers from walk- and biketours will get enough satisfaction from the enviroment. The tourist information centre organizes city-guided tours under the guidance of a guide.along monuments, churches and the old defensive works.
The hilly landscape of Limburg is providing in the most beautifull routes, for example a trip near “de Maas”, through the woods and “het Drielandenpunt”.
DRIELANDEN-PUNT & DRIELANDEN-LABYRINTH
“Vaals” is the most South – easterly place from Limburg.
Here you will find “het Drielandenpunt” where the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany border on. This is also the highest place from the Netherlands.
A funny thing to do is “het Drielanden-labyrinth” .
Where at least 17.000 hornbeams shape a maze of lanes. At the middle of this labyrinth is a platform that shows a great view of its surroundings.
