Surprisingly fun  Sucess!

Before we walked to Vaalsberg I was prepared to just mark a boring highest country point. But in reality it was a very pleasant hike from the town of Vaals. Don't miss the opportunity to visit the labyrinth near the top ;)

A nice morning stroll up to the summit tower which we "climbed" by fair means, of course.

The best way to celebrate a national holiday  Sucess!

At some point I just had to visit my own country's high point. Just going to Vaals by bus would be too easy, so instead, on a beautiful spring day, armed with a topo map, I hiked a circuit from Heerlen and back, searching out small roads and hiking trails as much as possible. And a very nice hike it turned out to be, over rolling hills, along pastures and through some woodlands.

Nice woods  Sucess!

Maybe not the World's toughest climb, but an pleasant enough diversion when travelling around northeastern Belgium. Might be at its best in the depths of winter after a good snow.

Walk my dog there occasionally  Sucess!

Whenever i'm staying in Meerssen. Good target for cycling as well. Above date is an approximation of my first climb, don't know the exact date anymore. My favorite route is without a doubt from Epen, where there's a quarry where you can find the oldest surface rocks of the Netherlands. Then up to the Vijlenerberg, a pleasant 7 km walk through the woods. Finally Vaalserberg, and decent into Vaals, bus out to Valkenburg.
