As soon as you pass the border and approach the municipality of Vreden, you will already see Sankt Franziskus looming. This parish church forms the central point of the village of Zwillbrock and is also the starting point of your 6-kilometre walking route through the moorland.
Zwillbrocker Venn starts where the asphalt stops. You can explore the area on foot or by bike. The path curves to the left, after which you approach a big lake. A large black-headed gull colony of about 15,000 birds lives here. As you walk around the lake, you will find shelters. From one of these shelters, you have a beautiful view of the flamingo colony.
