Cycling around Brunssum

A picturesque landscape with heathlands, sand dunes, fens, forests, marshes, stream valleys and deep quarries



Space, tranquility and beauty are the main characteristics of the Heidenatuurpark in Parkstad Limburg. An area of no less than 2,100 hectares and a paradise for special plants and animals. An area of extremes and contrasts because cities and villages border a picturesque natural landscape with vast heaths, sandy plains, fens, forests, swamps and deep quarries. A beauty in the Heidenatuurpark is the largest continuous moorland in South Limburg: the Brunssumerheide. A unique and valuable nature area where humans and animals can fully enjoy forest, heath and shifting sands.
