Description

During the Eighty Years' War you could find the Breda defense lines in this region. The Lage Vuchtpolder could be flooded to make life miserable for the enemy, thanks to defenses such as De Redoutes aan Zwarte Dijk and Lage Vuchtpolder Fort. Discover the Strikberg right away. This hill has always been slightly higher than the surrounding polder. During the siege of 1637 it was the site of a redoubt. In Terheijden, on the river Mark, you will find the Kleine Schans: a Spanish army camp from 1590. In 1830 it was still used as a bulwark against the Belgians, because of the Belgian secession war. You cycle back via the Hoop Doet Leven mill in Made and the Vrachelse Heide.
