Borders blur in De Plateaux-Hageven, a Dutch-Belgian nature reserve. Come and walk through woods and across heathlands, past lakes and water meadows: a water system dating from the early 19th century! In spring you will find orchids here; in autumn the meadows turn purple. Enjoy the varied landscape to the full on one of the many walking routes!
't Schut, a weir in the small De Beekloop river, was constructed in 1888 for the Weteringen. Weteringen are water meadows where the grassland is irrigated with nutrient-rich water for hay production. De Beekloop was extended to obtain nutrient-rich water, which means that the chalky water used in the Lommel water meadows now also flows into Bergeijk.
