The Heijkersbroek.

The Krang is a nature reserve that is largely wet so that alder coppice and alder forest grow there. Although they used to try to drain the area, nowadays the water level is being brought back up to standard. In addition to deciduous forest, there is also coniferous forest, but also grassland and old fields. In the north the area is bisected by the Leukerbeek and in the south by the Tungelroyse Beek. Het Heijkersbroek is an area that mainly consists of deciduous forest, plots of grassland and various pools, the Tungelroyse Beek also flows through the nature reserve. Ellbrug is a small nature reserve, also along the banks of the Tungelroyse Beek with the special feature of the Ellerschans, an ancient escape ramp that was discovered during the redevelopment of the Tungelroyse Beek and is visible again. This redoubt consists of a piece of land with a moat and a meter-high earth wall on the inside. This sconce was used during the 80 years war as a flight sconce. The name of the nature reserve is derived from the Ellburg mansion that once stood in the area.
