Walking through Oirschot and De Mortelen
- North Brabant
11.06 km (Approximately 02:45 u)
It is a wonderfully quiet walk here, ideal for a chat. From junction 10 you walk a bit into De Mortelen, a small-scale bocage landscape of poplar groves, coniferous forests and grass and arable lands. The landscape is reminiscent of the rural countryside of Brabant before the land consolidation. It is not without reason that Oirschot enjoys a protected village view. You will see many beautiful buildings. Such as the sixteenth-century St. Peter's Basilica. Near this church is the Museum de Vier Quartieren, a museum with a fascinating story about life in Brabant in the past. Further on is the Mariakerk, a small building from the twelfth century. At the end of the route you can see the Korenaar again, a flour mill from 1857.

The most famous windmill type in the Netherlands. Windmills were used not only to produce flour from cereals, but also to reclaim polder areas. Natural energy. The most famous windmills can be found in Kinderdijk, really set up as a polder model. A must see!
