Along the Rode Beek. A real border walk, where you can even walk on neutral terrain. Start in Ubach over Worms, where you pass through a cemetery along large excavations, but especially through beautiful nature areas, starting with the Teverenerheide. It is mainly on German territory and is characterized by heath and many fens and because there is also a height difference, the views are beautiful. After this area you pass the Schinvelder forests. They are difficult to walk north south, but there is a border road that runs right through the German and Dutch poles. The Tolbaan is even called Neutralweg and runs along the only remaining NATO airport in Geilenkirchen. The AWACS rise here, which keep an eye on us day and night from the air. AWACS are converted Boeings 707 with an extra radar hat. Recently there was quite a lot to do about logging. The Ministry of Defense wanted to remove a number of hectares to improve the visibility of the pilots. The Council of State has ruled in favor of the protesters and has banned the hood. You will walk on German soil around the woods, and go along the Rode Beek (Rotebach). Follow this river a long way. It runs through all kinds of forest areas and in many cases forms the boundary, which runs fairly straight, because at that time the water was channeled through concrete containers to facilitate the water collection. Now that concrete is completely overgrown, it has nevertheless been decided to return the river to its original curves (the Germans call it Denaturierung). The border is rather erratic. Here too, many plots of land have been annexed by the Netherlands as war compensation. However, most were returned to the Germans in 1963. Remember that the original plan claimed 5000 km2 with half a million Germans in it. Wilhelmina was very much in favor of annexation, while the socialists led by Drees were strongly opposed. In the end, only very small pieces of land came to the Netherlands, such as Zelfkant, Tüddern and Millen. They are places that you pass and which are now the westernmost of the Federal Republic. In 1949, the armed forces were like the chickens to take possession of the territories. In 1960 everything was returned to the Germans. At that time it cost 280 million DM. The Rode Beek all runs beautifully along it. And those places are all very old. Here too, the Beek Millen split the castle grounds and the village grounds. Now it's all German again. It is interesting to note that many Dutch people still live in this area. This even led to a Dutchman applying for a position as mayor in 2003 in Selfkant. He didn't become it. End up in the village of Nieuwstadt, where the prefix new already took shape in the 13th century by the settlers who tried to build a new one here.
