    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.

    The beautiful landscape of Southern Limburg. Especially the surroundings of Slenaken, Epe, Mechelen, Gulpen. Here you can find those beautiful houses shown on the picture. As you can see in springtime the trees are in full blossom. Awesome.

    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.

    Ruïne Lichtenberg. The oldest remnant of a dutch medieval castle. There's also an old farm, where you can learn how to bake your own 'vlaai' (a Maastricht specialty). Adress: Lichtenbergerweg 2.

    Eijsden is a little town near Maastricht with a nice castle. You can make a walk along the Maas to this village and come back by bus. It's really nice!
