Description

National Park De Groote Peel is perfect for a bike ride. Admire wetlands, moors and small patches of forest here. Along the way you will come across all kinds of ponds, peat pits, peel lanes and peel canals that were created by peat extraction.

De Groote Peel National Park
From the starting point of the route you immediately set course for De Groote Peel National Park. This peat bog used to cover 30,000 hectares. Most of the area has disappeared due to peat extraction and the reclamation of agricultural land. Today there are 4000 hectares left full of flora and fauna. You will find rare butterflies and dragonflies here, such as the mirror tadpole and the white-nosed dragonfly. Vesting Vossenberg is located on the edge of the Groote Peel. This fortress consists of seven casemates that were built in 1940 to defend Vesting Holland. They were placed on the old Meijelse sand ridge, so that the archers were on higher ground and could aim more easily.

Windmill De Cornflower
Molen De Korenbloem is located near the end of the route. This is a belt mill from 1870 that was used as a corn mill. The mill was damaged during the Second World War, but it was immediately restored after the liberation. The mill was in operation until 1948 and then the mill slowly fell into disrepair. In 1990 the mill was restored and since then milling has been done on a voluntary basis. You can regularly visit the inside of the mill.
