Icon description route Description

This walking route of 9.2 km introduces you to Hoek van Holland, the southernmost part of Holland's dune chain. You can take a break at the monument 'Kindertransport: Channel Crossing to Life', a poignant bronze statue by Frank Meisler from 2011. It highlights a special history of Jewish child transports during the Second World War. This work of art, not only a silent witness of hope but also of deep sorrow, pays tribute to the many children who were brought to England for a safer existence, and also to those who suffered a much more tragic fate.

Further along the route, surrounded by nature, you see in the distance a remnant of the Cold War: the troposcatter antennas. Located in the middle of the dunes, these mighty antennas remind us of a time when they were part of a global military communication network.
