Omgeving Gelderse Poort en Ooijpolder

Millingen a/d Rijn is at the intersection of the river Rhine and the river Waal, centrally located near the unique nature reserve the Gelderse Poort. Strolling in this sanctuary  you may suddenly come across Galloway cattle and Konik horses. Ooij polder and Duffelt are part of the Gelderse Poort. This year, the municipality of Millingen a/d Rijn merged with the municipalities of Groesbeek and Ubbergen. As from 2016 all villages belonging to Groesbeek, Millingen a/d Rijn and Ubbergen have become part of the municipality of Berg en Dal. Small villages, among which Kekerdom, Leuth, Erlecom, Ooij, Persingen and Beek, are all between the river Waal and a moraine. This moraine emerged in the Ice Age and has not only provided an abundance of mineral water in various wells, but also a lot of laundry works. On and behind this moraine is Groesbeek with exceptional panoramas.
