Just below Breda are some beautiful nature reserves. This cycling route takes you through the ancient Mastbos, through the Markdal and over the Strijbeekse Heide.

St. James's Chapel
This forest dates back to the sixteenth century. You will see stately beech avenues, but also coniferous trees. It is wonderfully quiet to drive here. In Galder you can see the St. Jacob's Chapel. This originally dates from 1468. You can also see a few authentic farms in and around this village.

Bouvigne . Castle
You cross the Mark, after which you drive onto the Strijbeekse Heide. You will find a wonderful mix of fragrant conifers, fens and heather here. Then you cycle a few kilometers through the Markdal. Get a breath of fresh air while looking out over the rippling water and untouched nature. What an idyllic landscape. Bouvigne Castle is a centuries-old hunting lodge that is surrounded by a moat.

Bouvigne

Kasteel Bouvigne
4836AA Breda

On May 29, 1972, the municipality of Breda sold the castle for 1.4 million guilders, about 635,000 euros, to the water board, which some time afterwards was renamed the Water Board of West Brabant. In 1977 the castle underwent its last restoration.
