A fantastic environment

Near the German border
Many castles, even more natural beauty, pleasant shopping centers, museums and pilgrimage sites. These are just a few things that Heijen and the surrounding area has to offer.

Cultural-Historical
This area, which the Maas passes through, has a rich cultural-historical past because of the river and because it was on the border with the German-speaking region. Trade and war alternated, which today results in lots of things to see and experience on both the Dutch and German sides of the border.

Castle
For example, Heijen itself has a castle, just like neighboring towns Arcen, Lottum, Molenhoek and Kleve in Germany where you can view these beautiful legacies from the time when the nobility still ruled the region.

Golf course
On the way to Afferden, you will also find the castle ruin Bleijendaal and a beautiful golf course. The castles on both sides of the border are not only separated from each other by the Maas, but also by the Maasduinen. This green strip and the adjacent forests run along the Dutch-German border from the Reichswald near Groesbeek to Venlo.
