Living in Echt-Susteren

Lovely and relaxed living. Relax in natural surroundings, yet less than half an hour’s drive from work. A schnitzel in Germany, a glorious glass of special beer in Belgium and along the way relaxing by the Maasplassen, the largest interconnected water sports area in the Netherlands. And all in the same afternoon! Echt-Susteren is also called “The Narrowest Part of the Netherlands”, because here you are just 4.8 kilometres from Belgium, via the Netherlands, already in Germany. The municipality of Echt-Susteren has a population of approximately 32,000.
