Discover the Heijkersbroek and the beautifully meandering Tungelerbeek near Ell: a special piece of nature in Leudal. You might even spot a kingfisher!

Your route starts at Eetcafé de Prairie, on the edge of the Limburg village of Ell. You walk through the village past the H. Antonius Abt, a striking church. Here you can see beautiful wooden statues from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. You continue to a swampy nature reserve west of Ell: the Heijkersbroek. The tall trees of this poplar forest wave at you from afar. You will find a cultural forest around the fish pond.

The area is demarcated by the beautiful Tungelerbeek. This watercourse has been restored to its natural state in recent years. More and more birds can be spotted here. If you are lucky you might see the kingfisher skimming over the stream like a bright blue flash. A loop through the rural countryside brings you back to your starting point. End your hiking day with a nice dinner at Eetcafe de Prairie - you're sure to be hungry!
