Gennep has everything in terms of nature, except the sea!
An environment that radiates peace and quiet, where small is the magic word for big. Where people take their time to have a chat. Where you can enjoy the products of people who know their trade. Where you can relax in the most varied and protected natural environment in the Netherlands. Gennep has always had a prominent position on the map since the Romans. Genneper Huys, for example, grew into one of the most powerful settlements. No wonder, so beautifully situated between river de Maas and river Niers. This is where Prince Frederick Henry stood up to the Spanish rulers while the rest of the monarchs looked on from the monastery in Sint Agatha.
