Description

The Mastbos is one of the oldest cultural forests in the Netherlands. In 1515, Count Hendrik III van Nassau had the then heathland planted with seeds of Scots pine from Germany. Ships for the Spanish fleet and later the VOC were made from these trees, hence the name Mastbos. In the middle of the forest you pass the Turfven, a quiet spot! The Markdal is an ideal walking area. The Mark has been meandering here again since 2004, where you can walk along reed fringes and flowery barren grasslands, while looking out over the rippling water. On the horizon you can see the church tower of the village of Ulvenhout protruding above the treetops. Further on you will pass Bouvigne Castle, an ancient hunting lodge. Through the Mastbos you walk over wide avenues and winding paths back to Pancake restaurant Dennenlucht. Terrace!
