Nature gateways & area entrances

First, lets talk about the nature gateways and area entrances. These are excellent places to start and end your stay on De Groote Heide and more than a parking lot and route signpost.  Much more, in fact. They are area hotspots that offer a variety of interesting and convenient attractions. Hospitality, fun activities with kids, interesting sights.... you name it. Every gateway/entrance has its own charm, style and possibilities, and each in their own right is well worth a visit.

Nature gateways and area entrances are ideal locations to start a cycling or hiking trip through the overwhelming nature of De Groote Heide. There is always an hospitality establishment there, as well as ample parking and information about the area and its nature and routes. Cycling and hiking routes either start, end or pass through these places.
