House ter Heide

The Loonse and Drunense Dunes
Part of this route takes you through De Loonse en Drunense Duinen National Park. This nature reserve is special, because the shifting sand can actually drift freely here. You won't find that on such a large scale anywhere else in Europe. In addition to sand, the Loonse en Drunense Duinen consists of forests with conifers, streams, marshes and here and there a characteristic farm. A wonderfully quiet area to cycle through. From Natuurpoort Van Loon you can follow various cycling routes, such as route 114724. So feel free to come back again to try out a new route in this beautiful area.
