"Small village near Veghel" Mariaheide by Veghel
Mariaheide Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 7 photos
Mariaheide is a small village just 3 km northeast of Veghel. There is not much to see or to do. However, if you like hiking or cycling, it is worth going there and explore the countryside.
There is a discussion going on about how Mariaheide should be spelled. It is said that the current name was introduced when someone made a mistake about a century ago. Before that, the official name was Maria-Heide. In a recent unofficial referendum, the majority of the inhabitants voted for a change to the old name.
By the way: Mariaheide or Maria-Heide means Maria's Meadow (heide = heather). The sign's subtitle "gem. Veghel" means "municipality of Veghel".
This picture was take at the southeastern entrance of Mariaheide, from the Heiakkerstraat. The alternative Maria-heide is definitely wrong, as the letter h should be capital H.
