During this walk you will explore the surroundings of Bilthoven, Bosch en Duin and De Bilt. Put on your walking shoes and let yourself be carried away by the beautiful surroundings.

From Bilthoven to Bosch and Duin

From Bilthoven you start the route towards Bosch en Duin. Bilthoven is a varied and green commuter village in the municipality of De Bilt. Due to the housing construction after the Second World War, the cores of De Bilt and Bilthoven were built together. Via the east you leave Bilthoven and walk towards Bosch en Duin. Bosch en Duin is a hamlet and is known for its beautiful villas and large plots. Around 1900, Bosch en Duin became popular with wealthy merchants from the city who had holiday homes built here. The houses can be recognized by the classic architectural style and a lot of wood.

Estate Beukenburg
You set course again in the direction of Bilthoven. A little further on you walk through Landgoed Beukenburg, which lies on the border of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug and the peat meadow area. The medieval strip allotment from the reclamation period is still visible in the plots of the estate.

Sights

Konijnenberg


3732HB De Bilt

This artificial hill is part of the landscape park and lies in the middle of a star-shaped avenue pattern. Five avenues from different directions converge on the Konijnenberg. There is a lime tree on top of the hill.

Buitenplaats Beerschoten

Beelden op Beerschoten 6A
3732HM De Bilt

The first Beerschoten house was built in 1685. In 1889 it almost burned down to be rebuilt in largely the same style. After the war, the house fell into disrepair, but it was completely restored in 1978 and converted into an office. Now is it? after another thorough restoration? privately inhabited again. The estate has a park forest in the English landscape style, which was designed in 1824 by garden architect JD Zocher Jr. It is located on the spot where an 18th century park already existed. Between the meandering ponds, a flowing brook and meadows with groups of trees, elements of the old construction are recognizable: straight beech avenues and a star forest with the 'Konijnenberg' and 'Goudviskom'. The park is owned by Utrecht Landscape. The Paviljoen Beerschoten visitor center is located in the former coach house.

Heyntjeskamp

Schaapsdrift
3732HM De Bilt

Heyntjeskamp dates from 1645 and consists largely of spontaneous forest on former drifting sand. We find a varied forest with Scots pine, native oak, beech and birch. Heyntjeskamp is an important water extraction area for the province of Utrecht.
