Icon description route Description

Discover the history and natural beauty of the dunes along the Dutch coast. The journey takes you through the impressive Waalsdorpervlakte, a place with profound historical significance due to the tragic events during the Second World War, now an important war memorial and a protected Natura 2000 area. The route then leads you through Meijendel, a vast and water-rich dune landscape where flora and fauna thrive, perfect for nature lovers and those seeking tranquility.

Further along the route, you pass by the historical Station Wittebrug-Pumpstation, a municipal monument that reminds of the rich railway past. You will also get a view of the Headquarters of the International Criminal Court, a place of global importance for justice, located in an area rich with history. The combination of nature, silence, and history makes this route a unique experience.
