The Brobbelbies.

The grazing area is divided into two parts with in the outer part grazing tauros and exmoor ponies and in the inner part wisents, the grazing area of the wisents is not accessible. The walking tour goes through the grazing area of the wisents and with some luck the wisents will get to be seen. The Kanonsberg also part of the outer grazing area has the largest heathland. As a place of interest one comes along a burial mound but also along a burial mound field with royal tomb 'The monarch of De Maashorst' who lived between 800 and 500 before our era. A unique find because of the rich content. In addition to jewelry and toiletries, clothing remains were also found. Nowhere else in the Netherlands are three richly filled graves from the early Iron Age found so close to each other.
