Description

De Groote Peel National Park is perfect for a bike ride. Admire swamp areas, heathlands and small areas of forest here. Along the way you will encounter all kinds of water ponds, peat wells, peeling lanes and peeling 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 raised peat bog used to cover 30,000 hectares. Most of the area has disappeared due to peat extraction and the development of agricultural land. Today there are still 4000 hectares left full of flora and fauna. You will find rare butterflies and dragonflies here, such as the peacock dragonfly and the white-nosed dragonfly. Fortress Vossenberg is located on the edge of the Groote Peel. This fortress consists of seven casemates that were built in 1940 to defend Fortress Holland. They were placed on the old Meijelse sand ridge, so that the shooters were on higher ground and could aim more easily.

Mill De Korenbloem
Molen De Korenbloem is located close to the end of the route. This is a belt mill from 1870 that was used as a flour mill. The mill suffered damage during the Second World War, but it was immediately repaired after the liberation. The mill was in operation until 1948, after which it slowly fell into disrepair. The mill was restored in 1990 and since then milling has resumed on a voluntary basis. You can regularly visit the inside of the mill.
