Holiday Park; Among nature; Near water
Your holiday home is close to the center of the Netherlands, so everything is conveniently nearby.
You can start in the National Park "the Utrecht Heuvelrug (Ridge)" with a variety of landscapes and animals. The woods and rural estates are ideal for hikers, while there is even constructed a wheelchair path in the Kaapse Bossen at the St. Helena Hill near Doorn. At the reception of the park you can get information, directions and tips.
Many country houses and castles, protected villages and towns (Amerongen, Driebergen-Rijssenburg, Rhenen and Zeist), the countryseats and parks of the Lustwarande are worth visiting. The tobacco barns and sheep pens are quite interesting. It pays to go to the historic town of Wijk bij Duurstede or one of the castles in the area such as Kasteel Huis Doorn and Amerongen Castle.
Shopping can be done in Veenendaal, Amersfoort or Zeist. The enjoyable recreational area Henschotermeer is within cycling distance of the park. The Aviation Museum in Soesterberg and the Utrecht Cathedral Tower are worth a visit. A day with the kids to Ouwehand Zoo in Rhenen or the zoo in Amersfoort is an unforgettable experience.
