    From Millingen you walk into "The Netherlands-below-the-Major-Rivers".The river here forms a sharp boundary between different regions and different cultures. The first kilometers run through the floodplains of the Rhine. In earlier times the river could flow freely at high tide. The dikes were still weak and the residents built refuge hills, mounds. The older farms are on mounds, with the stables there.The neighboring states also drew national borders along the Rhine. The Pieterpad runs right along this border. The boundary markers are drawn on the maps in the guide. At Zyfflich you cross the border into Germany. Since 1993, the border has been open to people and goods traffic. Many Dutch people now live there. Traditionally, there have been many cross-border family connections.On the south side of the Rhine valley you reach the foot of the moraine, back in the Netherlands. The climb up the Duivelsberg is quite steep. In Roman times, 2000 years ago, there were sentries on these hills. From above you could, as now, oversee and monitor the entire Rhine valley.The hills of Nijmegen and Groesbeek were formed in an ice age 150,000 years ago. You reach Groesbeek through beautiful forests, past fields and meadows and over hill crests with panoramic views. You will pass places, memorial sites of the Battle of Arnhem at the end of the Second World War, 1944, 1945.
