Nature reserves in North- and Central Limburg
Limburg is rich in natural areas. Besides the Big Five of Limburg, you will find a large number of smaller nature reserves in North and Central Limburg. Discover them all in the overview below!
Three of the areas span national borders: Grenspark Kempen-Broek, Grenspark Maas-Schwalm-Nette and Rivierpark Maasvallei. One nature reserve is just over the border in Germany, close to Beesel: Brachterwald. Central Limburg has two National Parks: De Groote Peel and De Meinweg. Thanks to its nature reserve called Het Leudal, the municipality of Leudal is also called ‘the garden of Limburg’.
In addition to these large nature reserves, Central Limburg also has a number of smaller areas of natural beauty. The nature reserves in Central Limburg are all characterised by their striking and unusual flora and fauna, their rich biodiversity and their expansive beauty.
