De Loonse en Drunense Duinen

Brabant Sahara

National Park De Loonse en Drunense Duinen is also called the Brabant Sahara. The area is over 7,000 soccer fields in size. You will find huge sand flats, ponds, purple moors, forests and the unique Plantloon estate. There is something for everyone to do. From hut-building to mile-long bike rides. Come here to wander through the ancient shifting sands or go horseback riding on the bridle paths and sand hills. Mountain bikers get their money's worth on the green route of 16 kilometers, for beginners, and the tougher black route of 26 kilometers. Note: permit required! Around the dunes you will find cozy catering establishments, such as Herberg De Drie Linden in Giersbergen and Manege Van Loon in Loon op Zand. Here you will find nature gates, recognizable by the four-meter high key; a great starting point to discover nature, relax or be nice and active outdoors.
