National Park De Biesbosch

The Biesbosch National Park is a green maze of rivers, islands and a vast network of narrow and wide creeks. The area is one of the largest, valuable natural areas in the Netherlands. What’s more, it is one of the few remaining fresh-water tidal areas in Europe.

The Nieuwe Merwede canal divides the National Park equally between the provinces of Noord-Brabant and Zuid-Holland. The part in Noord-Brabant is called the Brabantse Biesbosch. The part in Zuid-Holland is referred to as the Hollanse Biesbosch. The National Park covers an area of approximately 9,000 hectares.

The National park is ideal for hiking and cycling, but there’s more! A large swimming pond with a beach and a playground, a restaurant and several sports and events fields make this the perfect place for family trips.
