… or green, white or other coloured posts in and around Vijlen. Staying in Vijlen you ‘have’ to hike or walk at least one time and we decided to stretch our legs after our diner. Yvon, hostess of our B&B A gen Kirk, recommended the ‘yellow posts walk’. She knows a lot about walking in this part of Limburg, having written two books with walks by herself. She told us also about a couple of badgers burrows along the route, but to be honest we didn’t see any of them.
This walk starts at the St. Martinus Church, soon we were walking through meadows, with grazing cows, nosey sheep, small orchards, along bushes and wooden banks, sometimes passed corn fields, but always with great views of the soft rolling hills. The (almost) sunset gave the landscape a special warm glow and made it even more pleasant to walk around.
We walked along a Way of the Cross ending up at monument for the Holy Mary; there are some benches for a rest of enjoying the wonderful scenery.
The walk is rather easy and just has a couple of lower hills; generally the yellow posts are clearly visible. If you think you get lost, there is always the tower of the St. Martinus Church pointing you in the right direction. The walk is about 4,5 km’s long and it will take – without rests – about 75 minutes.
After a last climb to the church of Vijlen, we came back at ‘A gen Kirk’, just in time for a well-earned drink.
