Oploo is a cozy and picturesque village in the east of Brabant. This detour takes you along some historical highlights, through the nearby Triangle neighborhood and through the rural countryside of Oploo.
Oploo was an independent manor from the end of the fourteenth century. A small castle even appeared that was demolished in 1800. The current Kasteelgracht still reminds of the period when the manor existed. The contours of the castle are indicated by hedges in the village center. On the Grotestraat you can admire the Sint Matthias, among other things. This church originally dates from 1732 and was enlarged in 1929.
In Oploo there are two beautiful ancient windmills. In the built-up area you walk past De Korenbloem, a flour mill dating from around 1800. D 'n Olliemeulen is also a real photo opportunity: this beautiful watermill dates from 1725. Nowadays grain is ground, in the past oil was pressed. The route ends in style at the cozy Koffiehuus Ons Moe. In an atmosphere that is reminiscent of the fifties, you can enjoy a snack and a drink at your leisure.
Show d 'n dwarf
At D 'n Olliemeulen you can see the striking statue of Toon van Els (1865-1922). This man was also known as Toontje d 'n dwarf because of his height of 1.40 meters. For years he worked as a shepherd. When sheep farming disappeared from this area around 1900, Toon started wandering from job to job. In the end, wandering became his motto. People began to mock Van Els, so that - although he was certainly welcome in some places - he became increasingly shy of people. Today he is considered a local legend.
