Tour of Meijendel from Scheveningen
- South Holland
- The Hague
30.29 km (Approximately 01:46 u)
This cycle route takes you through Meijendel, a beautiful nature reserve just above Scheveningen. In the former fishing village itself you can enjoy the beautiful buildings and the characteristic atmosphere. From the starting point, Carlton Beach Scheveningen, you can drive straight into Meijendel, a varied nature reserve. Close to the sea you will see a low vegetation of dewberry, moss and sometimes dune rose. The prevailing southwest wind has created parabolic dunes with horseshoe-like shapes. Oak, hawthorns and honeysuckle grow in the forests. Get off at the Meijendel Visitor Center to learn more about this water extraction area. The route also leads you through some beautiful city parks of Scheveningen, such as the Scheveningse Bosjes. This city park was built in the context of job creation at the end of the nineteenth century on a centuries-old lean dune plot - just like the Westbroekpark.
