De Watering is a unique area. Here you can hike through the water meadows created in the 19th century to irrigate the wild heathland with canals. This made them rich in flora and fauna: no less than 350 different plant species and 120 bird species have been counted! The water meadows trail is a short hike but oh so atmospheric.
Tip: visit the nature reserve with a guide and learn all about its beautiful nature and the animals that live here. Groups also welcome!
Contact Natuurpunt for Wateringhuis and guided walks:
Because of its high natural value, the nature reserve is only partially accessible: between hiking nodes 62 and 63. The trails are not wheelchair or pushchair friendly.
Wateringhuis is wheelchair and pushchair friendly.
Wateringhuis is open from 14.00 – 18.00 every Sunday from June to September, and every first Sunday of the month from October to May. You can also visit by appointment (request 3 weeks in advance).
