Description

This route takes you through Meijendel, a vast nature reserve north of Scheveningen. You mainly walk through the forest in the dune valley. Many hawthorns and other man-planted deciduous trees grow here. While walking you will also see remnants of the former agricultural reclamation, such as Farm Meijendel and various sand walls and ditches planted with alder. Here and there you walk over small plots with pine trees. Meijendel is an ideal walking area, you can completely relax in this sheltered and quiet area. The hectic Randstad seems to lie here on the other side of the world. Animals also like to stay in Meijendel. About 100 bird species breed in this nature reserve and are home to rabbits, deer, foxes and weasels. Bats hibernate in a few remaining bunkers from the Second World War. For a small part of the route you walk through an open dune landscape with shrubbery. In the background you can hear the surf of the North Sea. Meijendel is an inspiring landscape. It is not for nothing that Vincent van Gogh lived here for a year.
