De Biesbosch National Park
What is there to do at De Biesbosch?
National Park De Biesbosch is one of the few freshwater tidal areas in the world. It’s a fantastic place to walk, cycle or canoe through a labyrinth of rivers and creeks. It’s also very special for bird enthusiasts, due to the many kinds of waterfowl that forage there.
The most special animal in De Biesbosch is the beaver. At present, these rodents have already built over a hundred dams in the wetlands of De Biesbosch. On top of that, hundreds of different kinds of birds breed there, including about 20 couples of kingfishers. The wild-tailed eagle and osprey are permanent residents, too, and they are spotted in this area throughout the year. In short, De Biesbosch fully deserves to be called a water paradise.
