One of Europe's largest areas of drifing sand.


De Loonse & Drunense duinen is one of Europe's largest areas of drifting sand. It was formed when the inhabitants of this region had chopped up all the trees for firewood.
Today it is an area that wants to be explored on foot.

You can do this on your own, or (like us here) with a couple of friends.

Next to dry sand of De Loonse & Drunense duinen is another piece of nature: De Brand. This area is complete the opposite: if you want to explore it, you'll need a pair of boots.
