Between the two rivers Lek and Linge you will find a piece of authentic Netherlands. A typical Dutch landscape with beautiful nature. The ideal place for a relaxing cycling tour or hike.

The Zouweboezem nature reserve

An undiscovered gem, full of beautiful flora and fauna. This storage area was dug in the 14th century to collect the excess water between the polders. Now it is an oasis of peace in which grasslands, reed beds and water alternate. Have your camera ready, because the swamp fields are the home and breeding ground for many bird species. The purple heron, the marsh harrier and the china grouse, you can admire them all.
