THE LOONSE AND DRUNENSE NATIONAL PARK
Surrounded by the cities of Tilburg, Waalwijk and ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the national park of Loonse and Drunense is often called the Sahara of the Netherlands. Spanning some 3,500 hectares, it has the largest area of drifting sand in Europe, and the blowing wind ensures an ever-changing landscape. It has been a national park since 2002, and it is definitely worth a visit! Whether travelling as a couple, a family, or a group of friends, spend some time away from your accommodation at the campsite and head to this magnificent park. Admire the endless dunes and the coniferous forest, and listen to the melodious songs of the birds.
You can walk or rent a bike at reception and cycle into one of the most beautiful areas of the Netherlands! And of course, you can also explore this area on horseback. Enjoy the hiking trails, starting at 6 kilometres, and ranging right up to 30 kilometres for the most daring of hikers.
