De Zoom – Kalmthoutse Heide

Source: EGS

The Kalmthout Heath is one of the oldest and largest nature reserves of Flanders, bordering the Netherlands and part of the Dutch-Belgian cross-border park De Zoom – Kalmthoutse Heide. It used to be part of a vastly larger European heath landscape. Its name stems from its location: the Belgian municipality Kalmthout.
It has been protected as a landscape since 1941, and officially became a state reserve in 1964 due to a petition of over 100,000 signatures.
