Description

Get on your bike and enjoy the Brabant nature and the Loonse and Drunense Dunes. Along the way you will pass several sights.

Loon op Zand's living room
The starting point of the cycling route through Brabant is Café de Kiosk, Loon op Zand's living room. Hospitality is paramount here. Café de Kiosk is the ideal base for your cycling or walking tour and is a stone's throw from National Park Loonse en Drunense Duinen. Get on your bike and enjoy the Brabant nature! When you're done with the route, you can relax on the terrace with something delicious.

Loonse and Drunense Dunes
The first part of the route you cycle through National Park De Loonse en Drunense Duinen. This is a varied nature reserve of more than 3,500 hectares. A great area to cycle through! The living drifting sands in the Loonse en Drunense Duinen are nowhere in Europe to be found on such a large scale, but it is also a wooded area with many conifers. The moist streams and swamps south of the dunes form a nice contrast.

Sights along the way
You will then cycle to Zwijnsbergen Castle. Zwijnsbergen was founded around 1552 as a simple house with a moat around it. The Zwijnsbergen cellars form the oldest part of the castle with their rib and barrel vaults. A little further on you will find the Liberation Monument Helvoirt, which was placed to commemorate the liberation of that place in 1945. You then cycle a large part through the Loonse and Drunense Duinen, before returning to Loon op Zand.
