A walk that runs along the border past vast fields and now a forest. It is striking how many border markers are there. On some parts near Haaren you can see five at a glance. Start the tour in Nieuwstadt. Whether it was really a fortified city is doubtful, but it did have the potential. Cross the drainage stream De Vloedgraaf and arrive in Isenbruch, Germany, and then walk past Schalbruch. They are old places, but there is nothing to be found. Both towns are part of the Selfkant Municipality, the most westerly part of the Federal Republic, several of which were annexed by the Netherlands after the war. You can opt to drive towards Koningsbosch (De Boesj) and then walk across the border to Waldfeucht. This does not mean that Waldfeucht is very old, has a walkable canal wall and a real castle, which now serves as a town hall. You will not find old churches here either. Here too time does not stand still, because you stumble over the orange fiber cables, which are laid by a Dutch company. All of Kreis Heinsberg, of which Selfkant and Waldfeucht are a part, will go digitally. At Haaren you will come across a special cemetery on the border. The designer had determined that, under the guise of: before death all different and after death all the same, all beds and especially crosses (white) had to be the same. The mushroom itself had to be banned and that is not easy when your village is called Waldfeucht. At Voorst, walk past a swampy forest and then along the Kitschbach which forms the border with the Netherlands and Germany over 500m. You will be approaching Vlodrop. Just like Geldrop, it is not Vlodorp. The Martinuskerk (1926) towers from the landscape like a powerful building. The white fake windows are striking and the building is strikingly large for such a small village, but you have more with churches. The walk ends with the statue of schoolmaster Gerard Krekelberg, poet of the Limburg national anthem "where in the bronze green oak wood". The fact that it only dates from 1909 illustrates the young history of Limburgers, who wanted to show with this song that they also belonged to the Netherlands. The last verse is even a homage to the oranges: "True to the old orange house, the people remain loving and faithful ....". The whole of Limburg, including the Belgians, sing this song, but the Belgians should not like the latter verse. In addition, the lyrics are Dutch, so the Limburgers go very deep with this song.
