You can walk along the only reservoir in the Netherlands in the Anstel valley. This reservoir has been preventing flooding in Eygelshoven since 1974, provides clean drinking water and is a particularly popular spot for nature and bird lovers.
Migratory birds take a break on the water, the kingfisher nests in the banks of the stream, exotic ducks steal the show and even the rare osprey has been sighted. Walking through this unofficial bird sanctuary is varied: beech forest, farmland, past castles and farms... From the bridge you have a great view over the reservoir.
