History: The Loon and Drunen Dunes is one of the most extensive shifting sands of Western Europe. This' Brabant Sahara "has thirty square kilometers living driftsand. That sand is deposited by polar winds in the last ice age. For centuries it was covered by primeval forest. Until local people in the Middle Ages, firewood and farmland needed. In the fourteenth century were peasants their cattle graze on the moor so the land became exhausted and the wind blew then increasingly open sands. The advance of the driftsand is stopped by the planting of conifers.
