Description

Around the Deurnsche Peel, the Mariapeel and De Groote Peel you will find different Peel trumps. These are all important and beautiful places in the Peel area that are worth a visit.

All other Peel trumps are also indicated with peat wheelbarrows and raised bog columns.

admiring works of art
Other beautiful sights on the route are the artwork De Turfsteker and the bronze statue Het Reizend Gezag. The Turfsteker is a reference to all the men who for centuries went into the Peel from Meijel to cut peat.

The Peel
De Peel is a raised moor area where peat was cut in the past. The area is over 1400 hectares and lies on the border of Limburg and North Brabant, in the triangle Meijel-Asten-Nederweert. De Peel, nowadays a National Park, is one of the few remnants of an enormous raised moor area. Today it is a nature reserve of international class, especially renowned for its birdlife.
