"Ice-scating at Aa-broeken" Veghel Sports & Outdoors Tip by Veghel
Veghel Sports & Outdoors: 5 reviews and 18 photos
In winter time, a lower part of the small nature reserve Aa-broeken (see separate tips for more info) is artificially flooded. Providing temperatures are low enough for a number of days, a big ice-scating ring is formed. On average, this happens about twice a year or so, between December and March. The water freezes pretty quickly at Aa-broeken, as the water is very shallow (less than 50 cm in all places). Sometimes, the ice is strong enough to scate on for just one or a few days. Occasionally, it lastst for one week or more. The ice-scating ring is illuminated in the evening.
In summer time, the ice-scating ring is meadow with beautiful flowers.
Directions: In Veghel, head for Heeswijk Dinther. When you cross the railway, continue for 100 m and turn left on a sandy road.
