Poppel is a nice place that is easy to explore on foot. In the countryside you walk through a stream valley and through Molenheide, a forest on the border between Belgium and the Netherlands.

stream valley
At Bistro De Nieuwe Burcht you can enjoy a nice meal on the terrace, so that you set off with enough energy. You quickly walk into the outside area. Walking between the meadows and fields you get into your rhythm. You walk for a while through the stream valley of the Aa, regularly you get shelter from the trees. Every now and then you see a beautiful characteristic farm.

robber chapel
After a while you walk into Molenheide, a forest area where you sometimes have vistas of agricultural land. At junction 96 you come close to the border along the Rovert chapel from 1735. From 1643 to 1672 there was a border church here for Catholics from Hilvarenbeek. You walk further into the forest. How quiet it is here! It will not surprise you that many smugglers used to be active here. Back in Poppel you can still see some beautiful monumental buildings.
