Biked from Maastricht.
Drive up almost to the top, then five minutes walk, dozens of people. Strenous ;)
Visited Vaalserberg while driving between Luxembourg and Amsterdam.
visit to all Benelux highpoints in one day
Made all BENELUX mountains in one day.
A nice morning stroll up to the summit tower which we "climbed" by fair means, of course.
As my country's highest point I had to summit it... and since i like biking as well, i summited it by bike... Good weather in july!
Hiked this, the first of three country HP's in a day (Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg.)
Hiked up from Vaals down into Aachen and back.
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.
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.
Is nothing to climb, just a lot of trekkings but was great.
but very nice too to see a dutch mountain on sp :)
with parents and brothers
This is realy funny to see this overhere.
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.
The date here is my first "ascent". Other times were on 13 March 1996 and 16 November 1996.
'Climbed' it years ago, great to find it on Summitpost! :-)
i reached the top of this amazing mountain(????) some day , back when i was around 8 years old....by car with my parents(H)
