  • 52.65 km (Approximately 03:05 u)
  • Cycling route 116317
Your route starts at Bed And Breakfast Ouwe Beuk. Small groves, shifting sand, grazing sheep, but also typical flora and fauna and the largest fen in the Netherlands can be found on the Strabrechtse Heide. This well-known nature reserve in southeast Brabant covers more than 1500 hectares. This makes the Strabrechtse Heide one of the largest heath areas in the Netherlands. You will find many fens on the heathland and the Galgenberg is located in the heart of the extensive heathland; an open drifting sand area. Also take a look at Heeze Castle, in the village of the same name. It consists of two parts: the medieval castle of Eymerick and a newer castle from the seventeenth century. The location in nature is beautiful and the eighteenth-century furnishings have remained almost intact, despite the fact that the castle is inhabited.

Sights

Kasteel Heeze


5591HJ Heeze-Leende

During the war, the municipal population register was regularly stored safely in the castle. As a result, it was also preserved when the resistance in a robbery set fire to the town hall of Heeze in September 1943, see also point 25 below. Because Heeze had no town hall at the time, the castle was also used as such for a short time.
