The Kruispeel.

In the De IJzeren Man recreation and nature area, the hike takes you past the beautifully situated fens of the Kleine IJzeren Man, Zwanenven, Geurtsven and Eendenven. The Kruispeel is a remnant of a vast heath and marsh landscape. The sand extraction consists of two pools, part of the largest pond has now been converted into a swimming lake Het Blauwe Meertje. From a hill on the edge of the sand extraction area, you have a beautiful view of the surroundings and the fens.
