In the Brabantse Peel you can take a nice walk near the old village of Heusden. The route leads you through the varied nature reserve the White Mountains.
Heusden is located in the Peel, a former swamp area on the border of Limburg and North Brabant. Now you walk through a landscape of farmland, groves and stream valleys. What remains of the past is the wonderful peace that you will find here. In Heusden you can admire the beautiful neo-Gothic village church from 1921. At Paulus food and drink you can enjoy a drink with fresh apple pie, a well-stocked lunch or dinner.
The forest around the White Bergen fishing pond is located on the edge of the original Peel. This was once a wide sand drift, the name White Mountains still refers to this. Production forests were planted here around 1925 as part of job creation. It is wonderful to walk here between the fragrant pine trees. On the banks of the pond you can look out over the rippling water at your leisure. The pond was created in the 1960s after sand was excavated for the construction of a provincial road.
