The Graaf van Horne hiking path runs around Weert through a varied landscape. This Long-distance Walk (LAW) crosses beautiful nature reserves, along fields and meadows and passes various church villages. The path also takes you to Belgium.
From the station in Weert you walk via the Graswinkel and the field roads around the Moeselpeel to the Krang. Via Swartbroek you reach the Ellburg nature reserve with the Tungelroyse Beek and the Eller Schans. Afterwards you go back in the direction of Tungelroy and visit the Tungeler Red Light District with its sand walls and sand drifts. Via the Areven you will then reach Stramproy.
The Count of Hornepad then passes the Belgian border, through the Grootbroek and along the Aa. After Vosseven and the Stramproyse heath, the wet nature in the Wijfelterbroek and the Smeetshof is a surprise for every hiker.
