Cycling through the Trees

BuroLandschap: This bicycle bridge is a project carried out in collaboration with Visit Limburg. It’s a unique cycling experience atjunction 272 of the Limburg cycle route network.

360 ° experience

This cycle bridge which has a length of nearly 700 metres, takes you into higher realms. You can cycle or walk through different decors every season, discover the sounds and scents of the Pijnven whilst climbing to a height of 10 metres above the ground. The path is created by a double circle with a diameter of 100 meters, which rises gradually (3-4%). This exceptional landmark offers a sensational yet safe cycling experience.

The large, clean-lined circle was a conscious design choice. It is a symbolic reference to the tree rings in tree trunks. The path was constructed on corten steel pillars, placed in a pattern reminiscent of the pine trees in the Pijnven forest. The pillars symbolize the straight trunks of the pine trees and are a nod to the region’s mining history.

The cycle bridge is an addition to the landscape that respects both nature and the region’s history.
