Not-to-be-missed natural attractions
De Maasduinen National Park
De Maasduinen National Park is located in the north of Limburg. The nature reserve consists of the Meuse valley, a plateau, and higher and lower sandy soils. The area is located on an elongated high sand ridge between Germany and the Maas. Until 1998 the name of the National Park was the Hamert. The area has a surface of over 4500 hectares. The Maasduinen National Park is managed by three different authorities: the Municipality of Bergen, Staatsbosbeheer, and the Limburg Landscape Foundation. It is possible to go hiking, cycling, mountain biking, and camping. The area is also equipped with four paved wheelchair paths.
The former name of the National Park was 'de Hamert'. The Hamert is now part of the National Park. The so-called parabolic dunes are characteristic of this area. Other types of landscape that you will find here are Maas meadows, heaths, deciduous and coniferous forests, fields, and peatlands. In the spring of 2012, there was a breeding case of hops, which are rare in the Netherlands. This insect-eating bird is normally only found in Southern Europe. It is the first time since 1995 that the hop has successfully bred again in the Netherlands. Normally, the hops only occur in this country during the forcing time. In addition to the special hops, there are many other birds in the nature reserve. You will find species such as nightjar, tree falcon, and woodlark. In addition, the area is known for its wealth of amphibians and reptiles. Near the Heerenven on Landgoed de Hamert you can find the garlic toad with a little luck. But you can also observe the natterjack toad here in the area. Reptiles that occur in the nature reserve are the smooth snake, sand lizard, slow worm, and the livable lizard.
De Meinweg National Park
De Meinweg National Park is located near Roermond and is close to the German border. This National Park is around 1800 hectares. The landscape of the Meinweg is interspersed with heath, forests, and fens. The park has been formed over the years by deposits from both the Rhine and the Maas. The Meinweg is part of Maas-Schwalm-Nette, a park that is shared with the eastern neighbors. The logo of De Meinweg National Park is an adder. With the exception of this National Park, the adder does not occur in Limburg and that makes the appearance of this snake-like special. As mentioned, the flora is formed by both forests and heathlands. Both coniferous forests and deciduous forests occur in De Meinweg, which means that there is quite a lot of variation in the flora of De Meinweg. The heather is often split into wet and dry. Both types of heather attract different flora and fauna. In general, wet heather often attracts plants such as "sundew" and the more scarce bell gentian. While dry heather often contains species such as "broom" and heather.
The fauna is also varied due to the alternation between forests and heath. For example, the coniferous forests in the nature park attract species such as crested tit and golden cock. The heather areas of De Meinweg are good for “typical” heather birds such as the nightjar and yellow buntings. Wild boars can also be seen in De Meinweg National Park. This heavy mammal can weigh up to 120 kilograms. As mentioned, the adder is an important animal for this National Park. This venomous snake can grow up to 70 cm long and is still quite numerous in this beautiful nature park.
De Groote Peel National Park
De Groote Peel covers an area of over 1400 hectares and is located on the border of Limburg and North Brabant. The area that is now considered a National Park is part of what used to be a very extensive high moor area. The area has been excavated to a certain depth, but it has not been subsequently drained. Because the area is not dewatered, you will now find a nature reserve that you will see almost nowhere else in Europe. Large ponds interspersed with heaths, sand ridges, and patches of forest. Because the area is of great importance to birds both nationally and internationally, you can only access a few hiking trails during migration (October 15 - November 30) and during the breeding season (March 15 - July 15). In addition to the hiking trails, various bat bridges have also been constructed from where you can discover the area.
During the spring and autumn migration, thousands of cranes pass the country. Cranes mainly pass through the province of Limburg. An important stopping place for these impressive birds is De Groote Peel National Park. During their migration, the birds stop to regain their strength. They catch frogs and mice in the large wet fields with piping straw. In addition to the crane, the Groote Peel is also an important area for countless breeding birds. For example, healthy populations of bluethroat, long-eared owl, and red-breasted wheatear can still be found. It is also one of the few places in the Netherlands where the red-backed shrike is still well represented. The flora of the area is rather monotonous. On the large open plains, you will mainly find birch alternated with piping root. The surrounding forests are rich in dirt trees, pedunculate oak, black alder, and poplar. There are also quite large areas of coniferous forest, consisting of Scots pine and Norway spruce.
