The Leudal nature reserve is a wooded area with brook valleys and a somewhat more open area with heath at a higher elevation. In the higher part of the area, the stage goes through the Busjop cemetery, an extensive cemetery with 17 burial mounds including a long bed. Other places of interest are the Leudal Museum and the modernized remnant of the St Elisabeth Mill. The oldest mention of the mill dates from 1278. In 1840 it was replaced by a stone mill that was larger than the Leu mill. She served as a flour mill, saw mill and oil mill. In 1844 the mill was destroyed by fire by arson, later the mill was rebuilt. 100 years later in 1944 when the German army withdrew ammunition was stored in the mill. This was detonated by the retreating troops and the mill was destroyed again.
