There are many reminders of the Second World War in the 'Heart of Limburg' region. This cycle route takes you past war monuments and 'audiospots' of the Liberation Route Europe. At these places you can hear impressive stories about what happened during the war, by listening on your own phone. For example, hear how the tower of Roermond Cathedral was blown up, how escaped prisoners of war were helped, and the explosion of more than 200 barges in Maasbracht harbour .
