Island of Brienenoord

The island of Brienenoord is a natural island with forests, grasslands, open water and pools.

The island

The most beautiful part of the island is located right under the Brienenoord Bridge: the tidal channel where the water flows in and out through sandbanks during ebb and flow. During a trip across the island you will encounter Scottish Highlanders. They are tame, you can just walk past them, but don't feed them.

You can visit the adventurous nature playground De Blije Bij with children. There are tree trunks, river sand, a climbing frame and a willow tunnel.

The Island of Brienenoord was created in the 19th century. Then silt plates formed in the Meuse and became overgrown with reeds, rushes and osier. It was owned by the noble Van Brienen family.

There is also an allotment complex on the island, which is freely accessible between sunrise and sunset.
