Together with the Riels Laag, Riels Hoefke, Halve Maan, Ooijevaarsnest and Nieuwkerk, De Regte Heathlands comprise a nature area of 876 hectares. It consists mainly of moors and swamps as well as pine and deciduous forests. Due to the damp climate, drosera, marsh gentians, inundated club moss and bog asphodel all flourish here. Many different species of birds and butterflies can also be spotted here and there are plenty of walking routes throughout the entire region. Among its most remarkable features are the seven megalithic graves dating from the Bronze Age (2000 - 700 BC).
