Sint Martinuskerk

Reviewed By Jennifer W

This small Cathedral defines the skyline of Cuijk. It was built at the beginning of the 20th century and survived the war mostly intact. There is a great organ (17th century) inside as well as a large and beautifully carved altar piece (19th century) by Hendrik van der Geld. The church is free to visit and the friendly volunteers inside gave us a pamphlet in English. Visitors can walk straight onto the choir/presbytery/pulpit area to view the altar up close. An attraction for all people and all ages!

Reviewed By Tuurtje75 - Holland

Just rent mountainbikes on a sunny day (as I recall 10-15 euro/day ask for a decent one!) in the area are very nice MTB routes of different length (map can be provided )
Enjoy the beautiful quite hilly area around Mook,Malden, Groesbeek and the landscape changes, deep woods and open views over Mookerheide. (heather)
Afterward relax on the Terrace with view on a small side arm of the river MAAS enjoying the small schips passing by.
Don’t expect fancy food but it’s ok after some biking , ½ ltr heffinger and salade "De Dolfijn" both very reasonable priced will do the job for having a very pleasant day with some friends our family.

This Cemetary is special as my uncle who I never knew is buried here. The Cemetary is in such a beautiful setting and is so well looked after by the amazing staff. It is always a moving visit especially when you see how young those who gave their life were. I will continue to visit whenever I can.

Wellnessboot Mill

Reviewed By Ingrid M - Geervliet, The Netherlands

Went "on board" for a days' relaxation and that's what we got. Place is very well laid out with a lot of possibilities as far as wellness is concerned. Very clean, spacious, nice colour schemes, atmosphere is good. The restaurant had a good menu for very reasonable prices and the food we had was very nice. Most of the (young) staff were very friendly, some (older ones) should maybe try a bit harder. All in all we had a very
relaxing and very pleasant stay.

Pitch&Putt Golf Molenhoek

Reviewed By Appeltje2015 - Round Hill, Virginia

We enjoyed a wonderful outing pitching and chipping. My sister and her husband had never golfed before and had a blast! They even parred a hole! The course is very interesting, even for a lower handicapper. Blind shots over trees, and uphill greens. The course is in good condition, a lot of natural landscape around the holes.
Bring your own clubs, or carry the putter and pitching wedge in the provided golf bag. Balls and tees are provided.
We enjoyed the lunch package: soup, a Sandwich and a broodje kroket. A drink is also included.
I will definitely come back next year!

De Muse Accordion Museum

Reviewed By Kentishtownboy - Nijmegen, The Netherlands

Every year in June thousands of people march through the village of Malden on thir way to Nijmegen. It is the famous Four Day March of soldiers, policeman, and thousands of ordinary people travel across the world to take part in a festival that has lasted nearly one hundred years.Many of the marchers have discovered behind the new Malden town hall the 150 year old school building with its adjoining 18th century farm house. Twenty years ago the school became an Accordian Museum, teaching centre and music centre for folk to classical music gigs. The inspiration for this centre was ex-circus artist and conservatoire trained musician Henk Kuik and his equally hard-working wife, Trix. Any traveller driving up from Maastrict north along the Rijsweg (N844) to the river Waal port city of Nijmegen who is interested in accordians,or even to enjoy a good Belgium or Dutch beer and a snack will discover that Henk Kuik is a curator of many talents. He can sell you an accordian, or if you are in the district for a time, help to teach you. The Sunday afternoon gigs bring performance artists from across the world. It is always full. Now, with the addition of the old farm house, there is an open air garden used for Concerts and a good place to drink, eat and sing if you want. The creation of De Muse was a kick-start to the community give the expanding village of Malden a new cultural centre. Complete with a well designed modern church, cinema, restaurants and a theatre placed inside new town hall building-a rather drab building that is unadventurous to the eye, the inside of the House of the Accordions has a sense of place. Pictures abound and my favourite is of the lovely large lady playing an accordion whilst sitting on the back of a donkey with a violinist flying above her. It has the spirit of a Chagall painting as does the whole place. If you want to get up and sing at a gig, then do so. I did try once to learn the play an accordion with some encouragement from Henk, but it was not to be, so I haved stuck to singing. The art of travelling in what are known as the lands of the rivers Maas and Waal, is to seek out the hidden secrets. All the villages and small medieval towns store such secrets. They are like hidden gems. De Muse is one of the gems to find. And for people who like public transport. Take an 83 bus from Nijmegen's Central railway station to route to Gennep or Venlo and asked to be dropped off at Malden's Town Hall then look for this musical jewel.

Stevenskerk

Reviewed By Malvoleo

After visiting the over elaborated baroque churches in Italy this was a very great contrast. Clean elegant lines. Awe inspiring because of scale but welcoming because of ambience. A prayerful place despite its dimensions. The primacy of the pulpit and the relative absence of decorative art says a lot about the religious priorities in this community.

This museum shows mostly buildings and villages from the biblical times. It gives a good overview of what the world looked like when Jesus was with us. Great for kids, lots to do.
