We recommend to visit the following places in the environment of Limburgse Peel
Arcen Castle Gardens
In the centuries-old castle at Arcen, which is now used as an exhibition area, there are wonderful gardens to be admired. Wander through the different gardens, such as the Rosarium, the water gardens and the Casa Verde greenhouses. Next to the gardens, you can also find the estate, where you can marvel at a variety of natural and cultural landscapes. In the park itself, you can also see various types of animals; squirrel monkeys climbing around on their island, all sorts of birds, including birds of prey, cranes and flamingos, as well as different species of fish. A professional falconer will guide you with the birds of prey, and special demonstrations will be held. In the autumn and winter months, you can even become a falconer yourself.
Dogs are not allowed in the park.
