Welcome the German-Dutch Nature Park Maas-Schwalm-Nette

Maas-Schwalm-Nette is located on the border of the German federal state North Rhine-Westphalia and the Dutch province Limburg. Within a size of 800 km2 its rivers, forests, heath land, bogs and varied cultural landscapes make it a very special attraction. In the heart of the Nature Park lie 10.000 ha of forests and nature reserves of major European importance (NATURA 2000). The more than 30 nature reserves and the National Park De Meinweg offer particularly suitable habitats for numerous animals and plants. The Nature Park is a place for recreation and rest, for guided or independent hiking or biking trips for gaining knowledge about nature and the local habitats.
