Hiking route 1904242
Provided by: route.nl
Your walking route starts at Apollo Hotel Vinkeveen-Amsterdam. Have a cup of coffee at The Harbor Club Vinkeveen and then walk along the Vinkeveense Plassen, a popular water sports area. They are the result of peat extraction. The elongated islands that you can still see are legakkers: drying fields for the wet peat. The draft holes between them got bigger and bigger due to erosion, that's how the puddles were created. In Baambrugge it seems as if you have driven back in time. From Baambrugge you walk along the meandering river Angstel to Loenersloot. Along this part of the route you will find one monumental building after another, varying from thatched farms and churches to the thirteenth-century Castle Loenersloot. In between you can look out over a wide Dutch polder landscape.
