Height Profile


Just south of Enschede is a raised moor area of approximately 500 hectares: the Haaksbergerveen, which is on the list of protected areas. Raised moor vegetation such as single-eared wool grass, beautiful white and purple seas of sundew and brilliant blue-belled gentian thrive here and the trees and fields are filled with nests of yellowhammers, curlew and bluethroat. The rare crane and the greylag goose can also be found here at certain times of the year. The moist soil in the area attracts many dragonflies and amphibians. The Witte Veen heath and forest area is also a beautiful peat area, which is rich in beautiful fields of bluebell gentian and single-eared wool grass. It used to be a popular border crossing for smugglers, but today it is a beautiful nature reserve where many Scottish Highlanders graze. They keep the area open and thus provide variation in plant growth. If you have time, be sure to cycle past the birdwatching screen on Gervingshoekweg. Here you can see different bird species, depending on the season. During the bird migration you have an increased chance to view the shy, rare crane at your leisure. You can park your car for free in the parking lot of Hooge Esch Buurse. You can order the most delicious traditionally baked pancakes in a converted cowshed, but the Hoogsche Esch Buurse is not just a pancake restaurant. If you don't feel like a pancake, you can also enjoy a delicious satay skewer or well-marinated spare ribs. Children can romp around in the playground and the Hooge Esch Buurse always has a lively, bustling and cozy atmosphere.
