The National Park De Maasduinen lies between the river Maas and the German border in the north of Limburg. The Maasduinen is a beautiful nature reserve with the longest river dune belt in the Netherlands. The partly forested dunes along the eastern banks of the Meuse consist of parabolic and stripe dunes and have been created over the course of thousands of years by an unprecedented interaction of water, wind and man. Nature in the gently sloping landscape with a whimsical variety of dunes, forests, moors, shifting sands and fens is really unique. The national park stretches over a length of more than 20 kilometers and measures more than 4500 hectares in total.
