Description

The Deurnse Peel and the Mariapeel are the remnants of what was once an inhospitable raised moor area. Because peat was very valuable as a fuel, it was called'the black gold of the Peel\\\'. Reclamation of the area started in the Middle Ages. The area used to be inhospitable, but now it is a nature reserve rich in birds. The experienced birdwatcher can spot the bluethroat, grasshopper warbler, shoveler, pochard, curlew, water rail and teal. In the winter the taiga bean goose comes by and during the migration time the crane uses the area as a resting place. You can park your car for free at the start and end of the cycle route at Natuurpoort De Peel. If the weather is nice, after your bike ride you can enjoy the last rays of the sun on the terrace with a snack board. When the weather is bad, it is good to sit in front of the fireplace, with a daily special. The house specialty is the Peelham sandwich, but you can also discuss a regional barbecue or lunch. Enjoy your dinner!
