Height Profile


Description

Get to know the cozy villages of Amerogen and Leersum. Amerongen is a mountain village with small height differences. The picturesque streets in the center of Amerongen visibly slope towards the Lower Rhine.

Climbing and descending
From Amerongen you walk to the forest of National Park De Utrechtse Heuvelrug. This route is especially suitable for hikers who like a climb. The moraine in this area causes differences in height, with the Amerongse Berg of around 60 meters above NAP as an outlier. But you will also find moors, shifting sands and floodplains. After a steep climb it is time to descend to Leersum. This village is known for the large flower parade that is held on the third Saturday and Sunday of August. This party is very special to experience, so be sure to check it out if you're in the area.

The Outdoor Lust
The start and end point of the route is Café Restaurant Hotel De Buitenlust. Take a seat on the terrace and let your tired legs rest for a while. You are probably ready for a cup of coffee with a delicious piece of homemade apple pie or a daily special from the restaurant. Enjoyed at De Buitenlust.
