Nature gate De Malpie is the perfect location to discover the nature reserve De Malpie. This large nature area is located in the municipality Valkenswaard and consists of heathland, fens, river Dommel and forest. It is a beautiful area to cycle or walk through.
It used to be a production forest that was used for mining. Nowadays, it is slowly changing into a natural deciduous forest where you can spot all kinds of birds. If you listen carefully, you can hear different species of woodpeckers.
