If you are not Dutch and have never heard of Valkenswaard, Netherlands, it is totally understandable -- it's a small town of only thirty thousand citizens in the province of Noord-Brabant. Among both Dutch people and foreigners, Valkenswaard is not widely known as a tourist destination, but nonetheless, this town has much to offer for nature lovers.
Valkenswaard is a great starting point for hikes in Dutch nature. It was recently announced as hiking municipality of the year in the Netherlands, and not without a reason -- around Valkenswaard, there are about five hundred kilometers of hiking tracks and three hundred kilometers of cycling tracks, all connected with each other. Nature reserve De Malpie is considered the highlight for hiking, with five different kinds of moorland in this relatively small nature reserve. A map with hiking routes can be obtained for free at the tourist information in Valkenswaard’s city centre. Renting a canoe and experiencing nature from the Dommel River is another possibility.
If you are in Valkenswaard on a Thursday, it is worth checking out the weekly market. At this authentic Dutch market, you will find many cheese and flower stalls. Stall owners often offer sample pieces of cheese for free, so you can decide which cheese you like best before buying. Holiday resort De Kempervennen is also close to Valkenswaard. For a fee you can spend a day at their subtropical swimming pool or go indoor skiing.
You won't find many hostels in Valkenswaard, Netherlands, but what exists is often (partly) used by school groups that are on excursion, or other bigger groups. If you don’t like the idea of having a big group of children staying at the same building as you, you may want to contact your Valkenswaard, Netherlands hostel in advance to ask. If such is the case, consider booking a hostel in Eindhoven, the fifth-largest city in the Netherlands, which is only a twenty-minute bus ride away.
