De Groote Heide is outdoor at its best. And it’s big, really big! It’s where numerous smaller nature reserves come together, each with their own unique qualities, charms and possibilities. These areas are linked by an excellent network of bicycle and hiking paths that – if you plan your route correctly – steer you well clear of the main traffic arteries. In between and around you will find yourself surrounded by gorgeous countryside and farmland. And of course: water! The area is sprinkled with dozens of pools. From the south springs a wide fan of creeks and streams, culminating in the Dommel near Eindhoven. De Groote Heide is beautiful, tranquil and quiet, and that is how it should stay. But we must also be brave enough to share this beautiful paradise with other outdoors(wo)men.
