Walking tour

This pink Wanderbuch has you following in the footsteps of the travelling journeyman, a profession that has its origins in a nearly forgotten German tradition called Wanderschaft. This journey on foot takes you through the Dutch-German border region, introducing you to local techniques and traditions. Discover unique stories along the route, which will take you to such lovely spots as St. Catherine’s Chapel in Oud Lemiers and the Benedictine monastery Mamelis Abbey.

Wanderbuch is written by Birgit Bertram and Guus van Engelshoven and published by Marres in 2012 as part of the project De Wandelaar. This project presented five routes in which different perspectives on the Euregional landscape were central. In 2021, Marres offers a revised edition of Wanderbuch, in which several changes to the landscape have been incorporated. Wanderbuch is only available in Dutch.
