Icon description route Description

(This is the western loop of the tramp route.)

The former vagrant colonies in Wortel and Merksplas offer a fascinating mix of nature, heritage and stories. Along with the Dutch colonies, they stood at the cradle of modern thinking about poverty care and the belief in a socially engineered society. The dead straight avenues reflect the discipline and order that once prevailed there. Both colonies, together more than 1000 hectares in size, are now protected as a landscape and most of the buildings are protected monuments.
