Grenspark De Zoom-Kalmthoutse Heide guarantees a day of cycling fun. Get on the saddle and come relax for a day!

Kalmthout Heath
The route starts with a cozy terrace at Taverne & Tennis Essen. Then you kick your legs loose in the Wildertse Duintjes: a varied nature reserve with forest, open spaces and shrubs. A little later you are in the middle of one of Belgium's natural pearls: the vast Kalmthoutse Heide. Step off and let the peace and beautiful view take effect on you. Delicious, isn't it?

Putte is a characteristic border town. You cross the border to the Netherlands in the middle of the village. Find the differences and similarities! You continue cycling through the vast forests of De Zoom. In Huijbergen you pass the Molen Johanna, a flour mill from 1862. Further on you cycle a bit through the deciduous forest of the Wouwse Plantage, after which you drive back into Belgium. Back at Taverne & Tennis Essen you can recharge your batteries with a nice drink or meal.
