I never walked this route, but people appreciate it. The first part of the route, trhough the town Venlo is poorly indicated. People say they have difficulties finding their way out of the town. Make sure to bring your passport, because you cross the Dutch-German border. The Maas ferry, which you need may not sail if water in the river is very high.
