Walking around the Hazeputten and Moerkuilen

  • The Netherlands
  • North Brabant

  • 8.35 km (Approximately 02:05 u)
  • Hiking route 752568

This walking route starts at the Vresselse Hut, a nature gate where you can enjoy a nice cup of coffee. From here you can walk straight into the Vressels Bos, a hidden gem of fragrant Scots pine, oak and beech. This 250-hectare forest was planted in the 1920s on a drifting sand ridge. In the middle of the forest you walk along the Hazenputten. This old fen is a lovely spot for a picnic. Further on you walk along the Moerkuilen, a wonderfully quiet peat lake that was created by peat extraction. De Moerkuilen is surrounded by a forest, so make sure you have waterproof shoes! A little later you walk through the Dommeldal: an old small-scale landscape of meadows, fields, hedges and beautiful regional farms. Here you imagine yourself back in the old Brabant.

De Vresselse Hut is located in the middle of the rural area of the Meierij of's-Hertogenbosch. On the edge of the Vresselse Bos, a relatively unknown gem, you can enjoy nature and the fresh air here. And that, of course, makes you hungry and thirsty. Settle down on the terrace or inside the Vresselse Hut for a drink and a pastry. Or a nice meal. Since 2013, this catering location has been part of the network of Brabantse Natuurpoorten. Get into your walking shoes, enjoy the peace and quiet in the Vresselse Bos and experience the Burgundian hospitality at the Vresselse Hut.
