In the last ice age the Rhine broke through the moraine between Elten and Kleef and separated the Montferland from the rest of the moraine below Nijmegen. In Montferland you will find a surprising landscape with rolling forests and a wonderful view of golden wheat fields full of herbs and colorful wild flowers. Country estates, heather fields, sand drifts, farmland and some recreational lakes complete the natural picture. And hidden between the hills of Bergherbos, on the edge of the medieval town of s'-Heerenberg, is one of the largest castles in the Netherlands: Kasteel Huis Bergh.
