Water plays a major role in the heart of Limburg too. The River Meuse and the Maasplassen are the largest continuous water sports area in the Netherlands. You can take part in all sorts of water sports and other recreational activities here. The rivers Roer, Meuse and Swalm meander through the region.
Central Limburg is a mecca for shoppers. Roermond has the Designer Outlet Roermond, its Retail Park, its home and garden mall and its city centre with a variety of shops. Weert too has many specialist shops, a covered shopping centre and lots of squares, making it a magnet for those who love shopping.
Apart from the combination of countryside, culture, shopping and water sports, Central Limburg also has the charm of foreign countries ‘next door’. You can eat ‘Kuchen’ in Germany, drink a refreshing beer outside a café in Belgium and return to Central Limburg to spend the night – all on the same day.
