You can cycle peacefully in the deserted Rucphense Bossen. The forest area extends to the border of Belgium. This area was originally formed by a cover sand ridge with shifting sand areas and heathland, but in the twentieth century it was planted with conifers. This is how the large forest area was created.

Brasserie Lodge Visdonk
The starting point of the route is Brasserie Lodge Visdonk. Here you can drink a cup of coffee before departure to prepare for the bike ride, have a nice lunch on the attractive veranda or have an extensive dinner on your return and talk about the day in front of the fireplace. Children can romp around in the nature around the brasserie. An attractive place to start your day or end it festively.

Disembarkation times
One of the sights on the route is Molen Aerden in picturesque Nispen. This belt mill was built in 1850. The mill was supposed to be built twenty years earlier, but construction was delayed by the Belgian uprising. The Wallsteijn estate from 1800 is also worth seeing. The estate is built on with an orangery, a garden house, a coach house, a central part farm and a part barn. From the viewing dome on the estate you have a beautiful view of the surrounding countryside.

Abbey Maria Refuge
This Trappist abbey was founded in 1899 by a few monks from Koningshoeven Abbey in Tilburg. The abbey was intended as a refuge if the French Trappists were to be exiled. That is also where the name of the abbey comes from, although it never actually became a place of refuge. On June 22, 1909, the brothers returned to their mother abbey in Tilburg. In the 1990s, a number of young monks entered after a period of few new arrivals. This allowed the abbey to continue to exist. Today the community numbers 25 monks. At the abbey you will also find a brewery where the Trappist beer'Zundert\\\' is brewed.
