Thanks to the extensive cycle route network in Belgium and the Netherlands, you can put together your own cycle route based on nodes that are indicated in both directions. This way you decide for yourself which direction you want to go and how long your journey is. The cycle route networks connect seamlessly. The system is the same, only the color of the signs differs. In Belgium you follow blue signs, in the Netherlands green ones. You can cross the Maas via ferries at various places. Plan your own route via the digital route planner
( routeplanner-midden-in-limburg ).
Ohé en Laak is one of the starting points of the cross-border cycle route network in the Netherlands and Belgium. From this point, you can always undertake new tours by bike.
Between Ohé and Laak and Ophoven (Belgium) there is a ferry connection over the Maas for cyclists and walkers in the summer season, which is only 500 metres away from our B&B.
(See also the website of VVV Midden Limburg for sailing times).

Cycling along the banks of the river Maas
About the LF Maasroute
The LF Maasroute offers a beautiful insight into man’s relationship with one of the most important rivers in the south of the Netherlands: the Maas. You cycle from Maastricht, which is (more or less) where the river enters the country, to Hoek van Holland, where it flows into the sea. To top off your adventure, you continue a bit inland to the ‘Maas City’ of Rotterdam. The signs will show you the way.
