Stretching from Hamont-Achel and Pelt (BE) to the green outskirts of Eindhoven (NL) lies a diverse and wide-ranged frontier nautre area of exceptional value. Its unique biodiversity, the variety of smaller nature areas and the ever-present heaths and streams make De Groote Heide a magical place. 

It is easy to wander alone through this huge area without being disturbed. Explore the area in different ways, every day, every season... discover your new experience on the website. 

The six municipalities of Cranendonck (NL), Heeze-Leende(NL), Eindhoven(NL), Hamont-Achel(BE), Pelt(BE) and Valkenswaard(NL)) have joined forces to treasure 'their' natural beauty and increase the awareness of the nature in our own municipalities together.
