About the step
This special route around the topic of the "Heroic County of Cuijk" reveals the story of many centuries of national history that come together in the Cuijk region. Stage 7 takes the visitor through the unique religious heritage of the County of Cuijk (the castle, the Carmelite Convent and the Crusaders' Monastery in St. Agatha) that remains from the time when parts of this region formed a Catholic enclave within the Calvinist Republic of the Netherlands
Once crossing the bridge via the Eastern bank of the Meuse you will reach the historic, rural town of Gennep: The tour takes you over the Jan Lindersplein to the old market, with the historic town hall, hosting the tourist office.
Here you may among other things, observe the Dutch Reformed Church, the Petershuis museum and the Martinus Tower. Just outside Gennep you will surely admire the beautiful Maas and Niersvallei where the Genneperhuis ruin is located.
