From Moelingen in the Maasdal you walk past fields and orchards to the Dutch church village of Mesch. This village was on September 12, 1944 the first Dutch village that was liberated by American soldiers. From Mesch you walk along vast fields interspersed with numerous orchards in the direction of the Berwijn nature reserve. Oaks, hornbeam trees and a lot of spring flowers grow on the chalky slopes of this area.
