Walk Kalmthoutse Heide (6 km)

Recommended TOP Scenic Route - Use the network of junctions

The Kalmthoutse Heide heath, a natural park south of Bergen op Zoom, is a park full of contrasts. You've got heathland, fens and woods, making this national park a particularly varied hiking area that many consider to be their favourite.

During this beautiful walk close to the Dutch-Belgian border, you'll be hiking along largely unpaved paths with occasional height differences. You will pass deciduous and coniferous forests, heathlands, sand drifts and dunes. During your walk, listen carefully to the sounds in the forest. There's a good chance you will hear a spotted woodpecker rap-tap-tapping on a tree. This walk is also suitable for children. It is a relatively simple round trip that starts and ends at a campsite with a pancake restaurant. A good spot to end your walk with a nice lunch.
