About
This is a national park, close to amusementparc de Efteling and the cities Tilburg and 's Hertogenbosch/Den Bosch. This park is like a desert, surrounded by a small forest. There are 6 main entries, and at each entry there's a restaurant and lots of parkingspace available. The "duinen" (in English it's called dunes) is a great area to walk or cycle around (there is a special cycle path) and there are tracks for mountainbiking and horsebackriding. Children can build sandcastles or treehouses, and dogs love the area, because at certain places they can run around loose. It's sort of a beach without the sea! Also great for picknicking, sunbathing, children's parties, groupgames, etc. A real popular NP in our province!

This place is one of beautiful pieces of Netherlands. But this is a hidden jewel. Very varied of wood, heather, and drifting sand, lots of sand. As everyone went to the beaches these days, we could enjoy our walk very much.

Beautiful and very unique area with large stretches of sandy dunes surrounded by pine forests. At the visitor center you can rent mountainbikes; highly recommended!

Dunes like this i have seen only on the Curonian split at the Baltic sea. It's very impressive landscape. And it's very nice place for people who like have a walk. And during the warm season can to spend whole day in this place.

Strange little desert in the middle of Holland. Very hot in the dunes but a lot cooler under the trees. The bike routes are great fun and its good you can make up different routes if you want. Riding through the sand is a little difficult but fun.

Theres a nice little cafe on site although a little pricy but you are in a catchment area.

Staying with family over Xmas decided I needed some fresh air & exercise and spotted there was an organised all day historic group walk nearby in this National Park. What an interesting day exploring this beautiful area, so right in the heart of Holland is a huge Sand Dune region left behind from the Ice Age and all that that involves including an oak forest still living but you are walking amongst the tree tops!!!
Met up at a large cafe/bar at the end of a no through road and set off, about half way round stopped at another drinking hole and had a well earnt coffee & cake before heading back to base but via some old WW2 German ammunition storage relics which was very interesting.
Well worth the effort

It's always nice to hike in the forest and dunes. Just so peacefull and quiet. And it's not too big, so you can't get lost. I do a lot of jogging here.

There are separate paths for horse riding, biking, dog walking and hiking.
The forest is quite diverse with different types of trees, that take strange shapes when you enter the dunes.
With some luck, you may encounter a herd of sheep.
The taverns near the entrance/exits are very nice for a drink and a snack afterwards. There is parking space there.

Advice:
- Be sure to wear good hiking shoes that close well, because there's a lot of fine sand (they are dunes, after all).
- Take a picture of the map; the milestones are easy enough to find/follow, but the numbers don't make much sense if you can't see them on the map.
- Beware of horse/sheep/dog droppings along the way...
