On the hike from Berlicum to Heeswijk Castle you should definitely visit the ruin Seldensate
visit. A great place, in a great environment.
The remarkable Kasteel Heeswijk, a moated castle built in the 11th century with its beautiful park, is of course the highlight of our hike.
Too bad that on this tour there are as good as no places to stop for a drink.
Backpack catering is here so needed !!!!!

On September 17, 1944, paratroopers of the American 501st Parachute Regiment land at the castle. They jumped off the wrong lock. Your actual drop zone is six kilometers away, at Veghel. There they have to secure the bridges as fast as possible. Through this error, the inhabitants of Heeswijk get to know a very special priest, the almoner Father Sampson.
