Most of the Somerense Heide consists of heath reclamation and the area also focuses strongly on livestock farming. Monuments and historical sites are marked and the areas are made accessible. It is no coincidence that nature in Southeast Brabant is attracting more and more tourists.
Nature here is dominated by green forests and sparse heaths. Coniferous trees have been planted in an area that mainly consisted of heather and were given plenty of opportunity to germinate further.
The Vroolijke Jager is a good example of this. The remains of an extensive urnfield form a well-known monument on the'De Vroolijke Jager\\\' estate. A Roman money hoard and a sword in a tumulus from the Hallstatt culture have also been found nearby.
When you cycle further south, you will pass through the Weerterbos. This is one of the few truly ancient forests in the area and the trees in the area have been swaying in the wind for as long as people can remember.
The area used to be much wetter, but because the area was arranged by grassland, the forest dried up considerably. In the Weerterbos there are several attractions, such as an open-air church from the mid-seventeenth century, a watchtower that was built on the site of a historic farm and a road cross that was erected for fallen aircrew from the Second World War.
When you leave the Weerterbos it is nice to take a break at Huyskamer Daatjeshoeve. Make sure you're on the road safely by having your bike checked at Profile Meulendijks.
