Height Profile


Conference hotel Kontakt der Kontinenten is located in a wooded area, which makes it the perfect base for a walk.
This route starts at a unique location: You walk on the old runway of Soesterberg Air Base. This was the first military airport in the Netherlands. It was built in 1913 and since then the army has made flights from here to different corners. Due to budget cuts, the airport was closed by the defense in 2008, so that you can now cycle or walk in this unique place.
Over the runway you dive into the woods of Landgoed de Paltz. This is a beautiful old estate that was designed in 1876 by the landscape architects Copijn and Springer. The terrain consists of beech avenues, sight axes, water features, a stately villa, a coach house and a shepherd's house.
Then you make your way back to Conference Hotel Kontakt der Kontinenten, where you can look back on this beautiful walk in our restaurant Konnekt while enjoying a cup of coffee, tea or something fresh.
