Maasvallei

The Meuse is a majestic river, fed by rain. For 40 kilometres, it forms the border between Belgium and the Netherlands, from ‘Maastricht ‘(NL) to ‘Kessenich’ (‘Maaseik’, B).  This whimsical river created a versified landscape with a maze of several old arms of the river, banks, streams, gravel banks, and more, in between well-defined residential areas. In the last decennia, several large pools have been added to the landscape created by the Meuse, as a consequence of the different gravel and sand quarries. They have created a paradise for waterfowl and migratory birds.

A definite must see: when you leave the ribbon development of the N78, you can discover some picturesque places in the valley or enjoy the charm of the typical villages of the Meuse.
