Bosser and Berger Heath.

These fens lay in swampy plains between the river dunes, in the 20th century the fens were reclaimed for agriculture. Later in the 20th century, a number of pools were restored, including the beautifully situated Driessenven. In the Bergerheide the bank of the Reindersmeer is followed. The Reindersmeer, 130 hectares, is a nature reserve in development. The banks are overgrown with heather, grass and other plants. In between pools and fens lie on an impenetrable (loam) layer.

POI 1 - Bergense sheepfold.

There is a good chance that you will find a shepherd with his sheep during your walk on the Bergerheide. These sheep keep the heath landscape open by grazing. The sheep spend the night in the Sheepfold, which was built in 2002 to an authentic model. Not far from this sheepfold was once an inn of Jan Janssen, better known as Jan d'n Duvel. Due to its remote location on the border, this inn was attractive for smugglers and poachers.
