    The Pieterpad starts to rise from the Medieval Market in Sittard. Beyond the ring road, the climb to the Kollenberg starts seven footfalls up to the Saint Rosa Chapel. On top of the plateau there is a beautiful view of the German hills. Then it goes down considerably and up again steeply to Windraak. Then the steep slopes of the Wanenberg and the Puthberg lie in front of you. They are not long climbs, and there are beautiful views from every high point. This is South Limburg! Beyond Spaubeek, hamlet of Hegge, a grubbe, actually a dry mountain stream, awaits to the plateau at Schimmert. Descending again, you walk through Terstraten, the most painted half-timbered village in Limburg, and then on a special path along the deep-lying Platsbeek and a pasture path of the "Angry Mother". Schimmert's water tower is like a beacon. Past the impressive farm Bockhof you descend into the valley of the Ravensbeek next to a sloping forest to Strabeek, a part of Valkenburg; there is plenty to do.
