Strabrechtse Heide

The Strabrechtse Heide is a vast heathland landscape that offers beautiful views. The approximately 3700 acres of the Strabrechtse Heide are part of the municipalities of Heeze-Leende, Someren and Geldrop-Mierlo. Don't be surprised to run into a sheperd with his sheep during your visit.

During your visit you might well run into the sheperd with his sheep. The flock is part of the efforts of the Stichting het Kempens Heideschaap to counter rampant grass growth.

Due to the fragile nature of the area only quiet forms of recreation are permitted. Luckily hiking, cycling or riding a horse on these plains is the perfect way to take in the diverse landscape.

De Strabrechtse Heide never ceases to amaze, whether early in the morning or late in the evening, regardless of season. The dynamics of the area are truly a marvel to behold. The landscape offers wide and beautiful panoramas, especially in combination with groups of clouds and sunlight. In the morning, before visitors start arriving, the Strabrechtse Heide radiates peace and quiet. And when people arrive, you can see them absorbing this peacefullness and enjoying the vast heathland landscape. The way the sheperd and his inseperable sheepdog tend the flock of sheep is also a sight to see. Sometimes you really feel transported to earlier times.

Man and nature

The majority of the heathland is accessible to visitors. The sandy paths are, however, situated in such a way to afford animals and plants a peaceful and undisturbed existence. Due to the fragile nature of the area only quiet forms of recreation are permitted. Luckily hiking, cycling or riding a horse on these plains is the perfect way to take in the diverse landscape.
