Active Nature

At Hulsbeek you will find the curling lane of KV De Eendracht. This course offers a challenging curling game! The costs are €7.50 p.p. including a herbal bitters. We provide the forms and balls. Reservation required!

Klootschieten is played with two or more teams going over the track at the same time. In Twente, curling is a widely practised sport. The next team member shoots on the spot where the ball has stopped. Each team has a leader (opperkloot) who notes the number of shots, both of his own team and those of the opponent. Afterwards, the number of shots is counted; in the event of a tie, the team that has crossed the finish line the most, wins.

Mountain biking

Active Cycling Nature

The mountain bike route at Hulsbeek has been laid outside the recreational paths as much as possible. No narrow broken-in tracks, but a few centimetres deep dug path. This sometimes exposes sturdy tree roots, which makes the route more challenging. In addition, an artificial washboard of hills has been created, so that the eight-kilometre-long round trip includes everything that makes mountain biking fun.

The Twente Walking Network is the most beautiful walking network in the Netherlands. Walking along the nature trail at Het Hulsbeek, signs along the way will tell you a lot about the trees, shrubs and plants you'll encounter. At the holly sign, for example, you can even read how to become the boss in the house! The larger signs tell you all about the woods, the stream and the church path through the moor. The route is very suitable for walking all or part of the way with children and is 3.5 kilometres in total. The nature path is signposted with the red arrow. Both routes start at P2.
