The historic windmill in the Wemb district and Hertfeld Castle are also worth mentioning. But in addition to the historical monuments, the beautiful landscape around Weeze is the highlight that attracts visitors from far and wide to the community of Weeze. Because in the idyllic forests and along the Niers you can experience the landscapes of the Lower Rhine up close.
For example, in the west of Weeze there is the Baaler Bruch and in the northeast the Kalbeckheide forest area. In the south, hiking trails lead through the forested Laarer Bruch. But the Niers hiking trail, which leads from the animal enclosure to the castle of Knowledge, offers a special experience. Here, hikers can experience the idyll of the Lower Rhine with its cattle, horse pastures and forests, which alternate with fields and meadows, up close.
Paddling tours on the Niers are also popular and interesting. Of course, cyclists will also find various signposted routes to explore the region by bike. The animal enclosure with petting zoo and nature trail at Hertefeld Castle and the wild boar gate in the Laarerbruch are particularly suitable for families. A popular excursion restaurant is the “Jan an de Fähr” restaurant, which is located directly on the Niers in the Kalbeck forest. Anglers who had cast their rods on the Niers also look in here.
