    Venlo owes its existence to its location on the Maas. The city was the transfer point for goods that were transported over the poorly navigable Maas to Maastricht and Liège with other, smaller ships than those that sailed from Holland to Venlo. Now a new marina determines the face of the city. The center of Venlo, in 1944 on the Maas front between Gennep and Susteren, suffered badly from war violence.The walker stays on the east bank of the Maas to Maastricht. From Venlo the route runs right up to Swalmen and along the border with Germany. In the beginning quite high on the deposits of the Rhine. In Tegelen, there have always been sand and clay pits for brickyards. The Maas created its own valley next to the Rhine. The steep edge is the border. Slowly walk down to the Maas valley and you stay close to the border, also through the German forest. Inhabited world is remote. Once at the Swalm you walk along this river to Swalmen, where it ends in the Maas.
