Geological Drinks / Bronnen op de Breuk

For centuries, the geological faults in the Noord-Brabant subsoil determined the landscape, but although they are still there, today they are hardly noticeable. The Gemert municipality wants to bring them back into view for the public. ‘Bronnen op de Breuk’ is a cycling route along a series of natural springs. Dotted across the higher and lower ground, the jumble of different layers of the earth ensures that the water from each of these springs is unique, with a colour and taste of its own. Cyclists can stop for a taste and buy a bottle from the local farmer or allotment holder, giving the fault a new value.
