  • Hiking route 334174

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.

Pimped estate
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.

Brasserie Lodge Visdonk is located on Landgoed Visdonk. This centuries-old estate has been renovated considerably in recent years and as a result, the beautiful nature comes into its own even better. The brasserie was built in 2013, using a lot of wood. As a result, the brasserie fits in well with the green surroundings of the estate. Here you can enjoy a drink and a tasty snack with a view of nature. On sunny days you can sit on the cozy veranda and on winter days you can go to the cozy fireplace. At Lodge Visdonk, everyone has really been thought of. The children can play and romp in nature at the brasserie and there is even a separate dog bar for your four-legged friend. The Brasserie is a nature gate in Brabant. Walk onto the estate and enjoy blooming gentians and all other beautiful plants and flowers around Rozenven. A lovely place to take a breather.
