Description

You start with a terrace at the authentic Herberg'T Klosterke in Den Hout. In this rustic village you can enjoy the view over the beautiful village green from the terrace. From here you walk on a beautiful rural route through the meadows in the Binnenpolder of Terheijden. In the middle of the area is a duck decoy, now a shelter for birds, butterflies and special plants. This nature reserve was created as a result of a typical centuries-old Dutch hunting profession. From the fifteenth century, hundreds of duck decoys appeared throughout the Netherlands, with which thousands of ducks were caught. The profession is still protected by medieval laws. The cage in Terheijden is one of the oldest in Brabant and was in use from 1693 to 1935.
