Tour of Visdonk and Watermill from Roosendaal
- North Brabant
15.11 km (Approximately 03:46 u)
Your route starts at Outdoor Roosendaal with its extensive range of hiking boots. Further on you walk over the Nature Gate Visdonk, on Landgoed Visdonk. Here you will find a varied landscape with old avenues, forest and heath. Nearby you walk past the Environmental Educational Center Watermolenbeek (MEC). Here you will learn everything about the special environment. The Visdonk Estate already existed in the seventeenth century and beautiful bell gentians bloom around Rosenven in the summer. In the Middle Ages, a lively trade in peat developed here. You walk back via Roosendaal. Long ago peat was exported to Holland, Zeeland, Flanders and Antwerp via the Roosendaal harbour. At that time, the Vliet was still in open communication with the North Sea, so the Roosendaal skippers even sailed to England and France.
