Your route starts at Cafe-Terras Ons Lieske. The nature around Heeze, Someren and Sterksel is dominated by green forests and arid heaths. You will also come across nice villages and a beautiful castle: Heeze Castle. The first mention of the castle dates back to 1172. The 18th-century furnishings have remained virtually intact, despite the castle being inhabited. It consists of the medieval Eymerick Castle and a newer castle from the 17th century. The Herbertus forests are named after the first Lord of Heeze and have a lot of variation. Deciduous and coniferous trees are thicker and fuller here: they have been there for a while! The Somerense Heide consists for the most part of heath reclamation, just like in the De Vroolijke Jager nature reserve, the conifers are planted here on former heathland.
