Description

The Leenderbos is an ideal nature reserve to escape the hectic life for a day. Put on your walking shoes and come here to relax.

St. John's Chapel
At Fietscafé de Hospes you can enjoy a coffee and something delicious on a terrace. Then you set out through Leenderstrijp. In this small village you can see some beautiful old Kempen long gable farms. Just outside the village you can turn left from the Kapelstraat to view the beautiful St. John's Chapel. This monument dates from 1843. Further on you pass the Heimolen, a flour mill from 1754.

Leenderbos
In the Leenderbos you will have no trouble enjoying the silence and the natural beauty. The forest is mainly planted with Scots pines that were once intended for mining wood. Here you will also see heathland, fens, drifting dunes and winding paths. This beautiful forest area is never boring. On the small heathlands you can encounter the nightjar or the gentian blue. The last part of the route you walk between the meadows and fields. What a change!
