The monarch of the Maashorst.

Tauros, exmoor ponies and wisents graze in the area. The grazing area of the wisents is not accessible. During the walking tour one comes along the grazing area of the wisents and with some luck one gets to see the wisents. As a place of interest one passes by a royal grave 'The monarch of De Maashorst' who lived between 800 and 600 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.
