Brasserie Buitenhuis is Located next to a beautiful lake.
The NECIS XC course will run around the Valkenburgse Meer (lake). The course is a mix of shell path (more than 50%), grass and a tiny bit of asphalt for crossing. At the moment, even the natural (dirt) paths are very hard because of so little rain and record high temperatures this month. Spikes may and can be worn (short ones), but not necessary.
