Way of St. James, distance 0 km
In 1987, the European Council called for a revival of the Way of St. James. The centuries-old and partly already forgotten European network of the Way of St. James thus moved more into the focus of institutions, governments and associations.

The Fossa Eugeniana, a canal between the Meuse and the Rhine dating from 1626 and never completed by the Spaniards, is the central theme of this cycle route through the municipalities of Arcen and Velden in Holland and Geldern, Walbeck and Straelen on the German side.
