In the vicinity of Valkenswaard you will find beautiful nature reserves, both in the Netherlands and across the Belgian border. Get on your bike and set off through the woods, along heaths and along fens. Enjoy blown on your pedals!

Cycling to the abbey
From here you cycle via Aalst, Waalre and Dommelen past Valkenswaard. In Venbergen you can take a look at the Venbergse Watermill after more than 15 kilometers of cycling. It is unclear exactly when this mill was built, but the mill has a long history anyway. The next point of interest on the route can be found just across the Belgian border: St. Benedictus Abbey - De Achelse Kluis. Here you will find an abbey shop where you can buy various things such as abbey beer and abbey cheese. A nice and tasty souvenir of your trip.

Through the woods
You then cycle successively through the Leenderbos, Valkenhorst and the Groote Heide back to the point where you also started your journey.

Varied plants
The fens in the nature reserves through which you cycle provide a special variety of flora and fauna. For example, you will find plants such as round sundew, bell gentian, tormentil and devil's sewing thread between cap and heather. On the fens you can see vegetation in the form of water lobelia and floating hedgehog head.
