On the border of the provinces North Brabant and Limburg, the nature reserves of the Groote Peel National Park, Mariapeel and Deurnese Peel together form an impressive raised bog landscape with impenetrable peat bogs, open heaths, wide plains, puddles and fens, quiet woods and rugged sand ridges. The largely accessible landscape offers from the lower stream valleys to the higher moors and sand dunes fantastic views with visible traces of past peat extraction. The prevailing tranquility, space and darkness also ensure that De Peel has become one of the richest bird areas in Western Europe.
