This beautiful route offers you the best of both worlds; the pleasant bustle of the city and the relaxing nature of a beautiful forest area. Fill your lungs with the fresh forest air of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug. The rolling landscape not only offers beautiful vistas between the trees, where people already lived in prehistoric times. Camps, ban separations, dead roads, urnfields and burial mounds are no exception in this area. Our cycle route starts at Attent SidB Hilversum and you can park your car for free. Of course you can go to the supermarket for everything you like on the go: from a block of cheese or sausage and a savory biscuit to satisfy your hunger, to a thirst-quenching apple and a bottle of water. When you have made your choice, you cycle to the museum and castle Sypesteyn. The building is said to have been built around 1288, but the oldest found foundations are from around 1500. In 1589 the house is destroyed by skirmishes and shortly after the ruins have been restored, fighting between French troops and soldiers of the stadtholder destroys the castle again. Around 1900 the estate was bought by esquire Henri van Sypesteyn. Using material from demolished historic buildings and churches, he builds a sober ancestral castle on the foundations of the ruins. This castle is set up as a museum about the family, but the museum also houses collections of arts and crafts. The castle garden is also beautiful: the park is more than five hectares in size and there is a castle garden, but also a maze and an orchard, which are separated from old country estates by hedges, moats and ornamental fences. When you have found your way across the Utrechtse Heuvelrug and come back to the city, you can end your tour at the supermarket. Before you go home to rest, you can buy all the ingredients you need to prepare a delicious meal here. This way you can enjoy the wonderful day outdoors at your own dining table.
