Area of natural beauty

The Sarsven, De Banen and Schoorkuilen form a nature reserve in the municipality of Nederweert south-east of the village of Nederweert-Eind.

nature reserve

The total area covers 173 hectares and is owned by the foundation Het Limburgs Landschap.
The area contains three fens: the Sarsven, De Banen and the Schoorkuilen, as well as marshlands, forests and grasslands.
 

De Banen

Thanks to a restoration in 1992, during which the soil was cleaned up, the De Banen fen once again contains a natural, nutrient-poor water balance. As a result, it regained an open character and became suitable again for species of the riparian alliance, such as the very rare floating water plantain. Some other unusual species in this area include marsh hay, sundew and, in several places in the extensive willow thickets, Common Gale. North of the Banen, a fen dense with swamp forest was restored a few years ago and named Het Hoefijzer.
 

The Sarsven and Schoorkuilen

The Sarsven, however, is still a nutrient-rich fens with lots of matsedge and wide reed beds.
The Schoorkuilen is a partly realised, partly under construction nature development project being carried out by Rijkswaterstaat for nature compensation reasons. This involves restoring a fen area that was filled with released soil when the Wessem-Nederweert Canal was built (completed in 1929). The Schoorkuilen project involves land on both sides of the canal: on the west side along the Schoordijk, on the east side along the Kwegt.
The areas are great for walking and cycling.
