  • The Netherlands

  • 51.69 km (Approximately 03:02 u)
  • Cycling route 3233630
You drive a beautiful rural route through the nice Brabant village of Maarheeze and various nature reserves. The Somerense Heide consists for the most part of heath reclamation, just like in the De Vroolijke Jager nature reserve, the conifers are planted here on former heathland. Just after Someren you drive into one of the gems of Brabant nature: the Strabrechtse Heide. An immeasurable plain of bush and heath where some beautiful and quiet fens lie. You may come across the shepherd with his Kempense Heidesheep here. Stop off at the cozy Boscafé Pastoorke Van Moorsel! You continue cycling through Heeze Castle, beautifully situated in nature. The furnishings from the 18th century are still almost completely intact. You drive back to your starting point via the authentic hamlet of Leenderstrijp.

Sights

Huis Jachtlust

31
5591HJ Heeze-Leende

During the war, the local leader of the NSB lived here. People in the current municipality of Heeze-Leende were also members or sympathizers of the NSB. The real members had taken the oath of allegiance. Sympathizers paid less dues, often for a variety of reasons. Sometimes they had to become sympathetic in order not to lose their job. Others chose it because they would not have to go to German labor camps. Still others got married, borrowed money from people who were members of the NSB and were thus forced to become sympathizers. Even if you had paid off your debt, you could no longer leave the party.
