Valkenhorst

Impressive and remarkable in this beautiful area are the huge fish ponds which have been dug out in the valley of the Tongelreep since 1900. They are an initiative of the baron of Tuyll of Seroos Churches of Heeze, later continued by the Heidemij. The extensive natural Greveschutven was also set up for fish ponds. Although the ponds are connected, they are separated by dykes.
