Holiday Park; Among nature; Near water
Thanks to the central location of the holiday park, you will not need to spend much time traveling in order to reach various places of interest. The tranquility of the national park of “Utrechtse Heuvelrug” (the Utrecht Hill Range) or the hustle and bustle of the towns – it's all close at hand! Discover at your own pace the magnificent scenery of the national park where you can walk or cycle for hours. The national park of “Utrechtse Heuvelrug” has a total of 6000 hectares and comprises a variety of landscapes. Besides the easily recognizable lateral moraine (glacier deposit), the moors, drifting sands and wastelands are also part and parcel of the national park. In addition, there are plenty of animal inhabitants: deer, badger, squirrel, Mustelidae (weasel/polecat) and more than 100 bird species. The woods and rural areas are ideal for hikers. For the lesser-able visitors there is a wheelchair path in the Cape Woods (“Kaapse Bossen”) by St. Helen Hill near Doorn. The national park also has a lot of cultural history to offer. There is plenty to see including many country houses and castles, protected villages and towns (Amerongen, Driebergen-Rijssenburg, Rhenen and Zeist), the countryside and parks of the Lustwarande convent, tobacco barns and sheep pens. You can visit the little historic town of Wijk Bij Duurstede or one of the castles in the neighborhood, such as Castle “Huis Doorn” or Castle Amerongen. Shopping can be done in Veenendaal, Amersfoort or Zeist and enjoyable Lake “Henschotermeer” is within biking distance of the park. Also the Aviation Museum in Soesterberg and the Utrecht Cathedral Tower are well worth a visit. Of course, you can also spend the day with your kids at the Ouwehands Zoo in Rhenen or the zoo in Amersfoort.
