Hengelhoef-Ten Haagdoorn

The Hengelhoef - Tenhaagdoorn walking area winds through De Wijers, a large nature area that has no fewer than 1175 ponds! Together with the moorland, brook valleys and grassland this is a magical walking paradise where you can spend healthy energy for hours on end.

 The paths in this walking area are signposted with coloured icons on wooden posts:

- the green route: 2.9 km
- the orange route: 4 km
- the blue route: 6.5 km
- the red route: 13 km

 Would you like something refreshing, a quick snack or a wonderful coffee? You can have it!

In the pleasant vzw Limburgs Landschap visitor center, you can enjoy a lovely drink from April 1ste to the end of October every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday (open from 1.30pm to 5.30pm).

In and around this renovated half-timbered house you will experience how life used to be on the moors.

In addition, every month several 'nature fun' activities are organised for the whole family.

The hiking map is available at the tourist office or the visitor center and it costs 2.50 euro (only Dutch).
