Along Monasteries and zinc, a special walk. It leads from the beautiful Dommeldal past one of the most famous roosters in the Netherlands: the Achelse Kluis. But first Borkel and Schaft, they are two neighboring hamlets. It is nothing, but they are nicely situated on the Dommel. If you walk a little further, you will see the Abbey. Beer is brewed, you can sleep there and last but not leats, you can enjoy original Geregorian chants on Sundays. The abbey was a Catholic enclave and therefore important for the Romans. The grounds around the vault now form the nature reserve of the Achel vault with rivers and swamps. After the monastery there is a beautiful border path to Budel. Budel consists of various cores: Budel, Budel Schoot and Budel Dorplein. It is fairly industrial here and you have to wait until Budel Dorplein before the nature reserves reappear. Beware: no Village, but Dor. That comes from the Dor family, who established the zinc factories here. The company was so paternalistic that even the headmaster was on the factory's payroll. The dirtiest substances were produced here in the past, with sulfuric acid reaching the workers very hard. The good news is that the processing of heavy metals here is now under control due to the remediation that has taken place here. The factories (nowadays from Nyrstar) are still there and form an ugly sight, but also a good job opportunity. And now you hope that the soil is not polluted too much, despite the protected zinc pansy.
