The Strabrechtse Heide has great ecological and cultural-historical values. This nature reserve covers 1500 hectares and is the largest heath area in the Netherlands. In the heart is the open drifting sand area, the Galgenberg, with typical vegetation consisting of spurrie, sheep grass and bunt. The Schaapskooi on the heath is home to a herd of about four hundred Kempen heath sheep, a breed that almost became extinct in the mid-twentieth century. The herd can be found on the heath during the day and those who come early can bring the sheep onto the heath.

In the spring, shovelers and garganeys nest around the fens. The melancholy call of the curlew can be heard clearly while the green woodpecker searches the ground for ants and other treats. But the most impressive animal that inhabits the moor is the crane, which announces its arrival with trumpets.
