Arcen is a true gem for tourists who visit the Maasduinen. This former fortified city is located between the Meuse and the border with Germany. The ruins of “De Schanstoren” tollgate and the unfinished canal “De Fossa Eugeniana” on the border with German Straelen remind us of the town's past as a stronghold. A part of the canal, together with some entrenchments, can be admired during a nice walk. Arcen is a perfect starting point for many cycling and walking routes. People from Limburg love good food and beer. You can enjoy finger-licking good food on the terraces in the centre of Arcen. Various local products are prepared here in traditional and innovative ways. Or maybe you'd prefer a stroll through the streets and along the Meuse while eating ice cream? Also visit the beautifully renovated castle gardens, the grain distillery 'de IJsvogel', the 'De Hertog Jan' brewery and don't miss the chance to relax in Thermal Bath Arcen!
