The Groote Heide and the Stabrechtse Heide
Provided by: Groots Genieten
Close to Eindhoven you will find beautiful nature reserves and charming Brabant towns. This route takes you through Heeze, Asten and the extensive nature reserves in the area.
De Groote Heide is the starting point of this route. This heath was once large, as the name suggests. Nowadays, however, there is little left of the Groote Heide. A large part of the heathlands have been turned into forest areas. Just past Heeze you cycle through a large heathland area: the Stabrechtse Heide. Here you will find seemingly endless fields of shrub heath, heather and fens. You will cycle along the Beuven, the largest fen in the Netherlands. Around the fens you will find special vegetation such as the water spoon and the carnivorous sundew. This area is also very popular with dragonflies, moor frogs and natterjack toads.
From Heeze you can briefly deviate from the route to visit Heeze Castle. This is one of the last inhabited castles in the Netherlands. The castle consists of a medieval part, remains of the old Eymerick Castle and a part that was built in 1665 by the famous architect Pieter Post. Today only part of the castle is inhabited. You can visit the other parts of the castle.
