Cycle route Natural History Asten

(24.0 km)

You cycle through areas with meadows and greenhouses. In Asten-Heusden, a visit to the botanical garden behind the church is highly recommended. 

Once upon a time, the Heerheid Asten was governed from the castle. Now it is a ruin with a castle farm that is more than worth a visit (note: cannot be visited individually, but through a (group) tour or summer evening tour in July and August). 

You also pass old neighbourhoods, forests and areas that were reclaimed from the wild Peel in the 19th and 20th centuries.
