Haaksbergerveen

The Haaksbergerveen is part of the remains of a vast peat moor in the border area between the Netherlands and Germany. It is approximately 500 acres large, situated in the eastern part of the Netherlands, south of the city of Enschede and close to Haaksbergen. Most of the peat has been dug out in the past, mainly by local farmers. Today a number of peat bogs gives the area its characteristic appearance.
