Along the Venrayse and Overloonse forests. A woody route that starts a bit boring at Ysselsteyn, because a part of the provincial road has to be covered. But then you constantly walk in or along forest areas, passing Vredepeel. The town itself is very recent, but the border conflicts are of a somewhat older date. This is because there is a kink in the province of Limburg, where the Vredepaal is located. The people from Brabant lost a lot of land here to the Gelrenians, who were under Prussian rule. There is a Vredeweg and a Twistweg running here as silent witnesses of the area called "De Twist". It was also in Vredepeel, where an air force base was established in 1957 and where cruise missiles would be stationed at the time. That party was then canceled due to the peace movement. Van Ysstelsteyn, it must be mentioned that it has a German military war cemetery. The largest in the Netherlands (35,000). There was a lot of fighting in WWII. In fact, the entire village was completely destroyed at the Battle of Overloon. It was here that the Germans wanted to deny the Allies the Maas crossing. A full tank battle took place here, with the Allies actually ending badly due to the large losses (2000 men) suffered here. There is now a museum in Overloon, reminiscent of the atrocities and now called Liberty Park.
