The former German line.

Around the turn of the century, the Princepeel was mined southwest of Mill. The peeling settlement Wilbertoord was created in 1920 during this reclamation. Long before that, Langenboom was established as a peel settlement. Immediately after leaving Wilbertoord, the stage goes through the Molenheide, a forest area that mainly consists of coniferous trees. But due to management measures, it has become a very attractive mixed forest area with a beautiful open area with a view point, where you have a beautiful view over the open area. After leaving the Molenheide, the stage goes to the Groespeel. In this area you will again pass the Peel Canal that was part of the Peel-Raamstelling and over the former German line. This railway connection connected the Dutch village Boxtel with the German village Wezel. There are still several casemates at the Peel Canal and asparagus at the German Lijntje that were intended to derail trains. The last part of this stage goes through the Kuilen and the Langenboomse forests. De Kuilen, where excavators once stood, is a surprising lake area that is increasingly taking on a natural character. The Langenboomse forests are originally a production forest that is also getting more and more variation due to management measures, resulting in an attractive forest for walking.
