Cycling route ‘Venray-Tienray’

The village of Tienray, which is part of the municipality of Horst aan de Maas, was home to many people in hiding from surrounding villages during World War II, and it was severely hit by the Germans. This cycling route takes you from Venray to this village, which is now also a pilgrimage site. The most interesting places along this route include the German War Cemetery in Ysselsteyn (Liberation Route audio spot 203) and the monument to Hanna van de Voort in Tienray.
