Beek is a large village, but despite its size has few urban features. The place is surrounded by both rural areas and urban areas as well as strong industrial areas. On the north side of the town is Geleen with the Chemelot industrial complex, on the east side the hill country, on the south side the Maastricht-Aachen Airport (locally better known as the Beek airport) and on the west side the Stein residential area. This walk takes you to and from Beek-Elsloo station. The first 1.5 km from the Beek station is not very inspiring, but it soon becomes very beautiful. A red pole route starts at the town hall and is followed until you are back in Beek, but beware, here and there a pole is missing. So hold on to the AllTrails map. Elsewhere in Beek is the so-called Leopold Church, a Protestant church that was built in 1835-1837, when Limburg was part of Belgium, at the expense of the Belgian government. Since 1924 this church has been in the possession of a special organ (the 'de Rijckere organ'), originally built for the Reformed Church in Axel in 1775/76 by the de Rijckere brothers. The pastor house on the corner of Raadhuisstraat and Burgemeester Janssenstraat is also special. The house was founded in sixteenth-century bacon band architecture as can be found in De Bongard Castle and Schaesberg Castle's main house. The building itself, however, was not built until the beginning of the eighteenth century, the period from which the current interior dates from. At the front of the building is a monument that recalls the persecution of the Jews and the synagogue which was demolished around 1990. After climbing a staircase you will come to the Molenberg Chapel of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal (Counselor) is visited to date by Mariavereerders from the region. In a short stretch of Klemonderbos you walk past apple orchards and through hollow roads you come through the two hamlets Kelmond and Klein-Genhout, where various old hooves and half-timbered houses are located. Other monumental buildings along the route are: Huize Genbroek (located in the Kelmonderbos and St. Hubertus windmill. This mill is a standard mill. The mill was built in 1801 and was in operation until the late 1940s. 1 guilder sold to the municipality of Beek, who had it restored, Genbroek estate was restored and returned to the original English landscape style in 1994. The Genbroek house was originally built as a farm around a courtyard in the 17th century and 2 centuries later, after a short period of time owned by the municipality of Beek, the castle came into the possession of a private limited company which subdivided it into a number of rental apartments. The Kelmonderbos consists of marshy grasslands and parcels of slope and swamp forest that lie in the Keutelbeek valley in the swamp forest to make room for tree species that naturally belong here. Occurrences here are robert's herb, large witch's herb and woodland horn. Many species of birds and bats live in the area. Ties are also found here. At the end of the route you walk through and past a work of art by James Jetlag Kunstprojecten, a creative company, formed around visual artist and muralist James Jetlag. The James Jetlag team produces beautiful, high-quality and high-quality murals.
