Within a stone’s throw of the historic Maastricht, with plenty of natural beauty, lies the holiday park of “Sonnevijver” (“Sunny Pond”). From this park you can make wonderful walks or go for a bicycle ride, in an extended natural area of almost 14,000 acres. Oud-Rekem, named the “most beautiful Flemish village” by the Flemish Tourist Club in 2008, is just a few minutes away from the park, by bike!
The Limburg province has a very good reputation to be explored by bike, by way of its numerous bicycle routes. The extensive moorlands, the numerous woods and the romantic castles of Lanaken are important attractions within the National Park “Hoge Kempen”.
Or get in your hiking shoes and explore the most attractive spots of Lanaken, like a 19 miles walking tour, starting from Oud-Rekem. Kayaking on the river Maas, a boat trip, a visit to the children's farm – everything is possible! At a half hour’s drive is the city of Landgraaf, with its indoor ski run: Snow-world.
Pay a visit to the city of Maastricht, with its nice pubs, shops and restaurants. At less than 4 miles is Maasmechelen, where you will find the Outlet Shopping Maasmechelen Village - Chic Outlet.
