Kasteel de Berckt

Kasteel de Berckt is a castle located in Baarlo. It used to be a 16th century castle entirely in Renaissance style, but in 1830 it was rebuilt in the Neoclassical style. From 1901 to 1922, the castle was used as a monastery for an order of French Carmelite nuns. Until the second half of the 20th century, it housed several monastic orders. From 1995 the castle has become an event and congress center with possibilities to stay overnight.

Kasteelhoeve d'Erp

Castle d'Erp is located on the south side of the village. Previously, this castle was also called Huys Baarlo or the Borcht. The name d'Erp is taken from the last noble family who lived in the castle. The d'Erp family left the castle in 1914. In the meantime, the castle has been restored and the mayor of Maasbree also lived here for a while. The castle was sold in 1993 and now serves as a luxury holiday home.


Maes21 is a special place located direct next to the Meuse, where you can eat & drink in a cozy, homely and hospitable atmosphere. Maes21 is located directly next to the Meuse and thus offers a fantastic view and directly overlooks 'Kloosterdorp Steyl' and the ferry. You can come here by bike from Steyl or Hout Blerick and take a moment of rest. They have a diverse menu with something for everyone, such as: toasted sandwiches, bouncers, salads and even more diverse dishes. Fun fact: Maes21 has its own vegetable garden. The kitchen uses vegetables, fruit and herbs from their own garden. That's going to be delicious!
