Different centres with their own identity

The municipality of Cranendonck is located to the east of De Groote Heide and is named after Cranendonck Castle. The original caste dates back to the 13th century and was located centrally between several hamlets. It is now a castle villa, but the outlines of the old castle are still visible.

Cranendonck has few residents, but a lot of nature. It has streams, brooks and rivers, beautiful woodlands and miles and miles of cycling and hiking trails. With nearly 21,000 inhabitants and 80 km2 of surface area it is one of the smaller municipalities of De Groote Heide. But when it comes to ​​space, nature and area, Cranendonck most assuredly belongs to the 'bigger' ones.
