Hiking in Roosendaal, North Brabant, The Netherlands
Hiking route 334174
Provided by: Brabantse Natuurpoorten
This route takes you through the nature-rich countryside south of Roosendaal in Brabant. You walk through the Visdonk estate, but also a bit through the Rucphense Bossen.
Landgoed Visdonk already existed in the seventeenth century. In recent years, nature in the area has been greatly enriched. Here you walk through stately avenues, through a dense pine forest and through heathland where eagle fen grows. Between the wooded areas are grassy meadows where typical Dutch cows roam. In summer, the Rozenven area is a paradise for gentians. You will also see many dragonflies and amphibians. A nice place to enjoy the silence for a while.
Old peat sailing
Centuries ago, there was a system of peat canals in this area to connect the peat areas with Roosendaal and Breda. Visdonk is still bisected by the Roosendaalse Vaart: a fifteen kilometer long peat canal that dates back to the fourteenth century, a real cultural-historical monument. At the end of your route you can enjoy a drink, snack and the sun on the cozy veranda of Brasserie Lodge Visdonk.
