Description

This brisk walk takes you around the extensive site of the former military airfield Soesterberg. Years ago this was a hermetically sealed stronghold, but now it is open to the public. In 2008, the base was closed and the military left the site. The starting point of this route is just outside Soesterberg. From here you walk along a leafy road with beautiful villas to the village of Huis ter Heide. You can also enjoy a quiet and beautiful environment there. Then you walk further along the outer edge of Den Dolder. The area on your right consists of the outer areas of Park Vliegbasis Soesterberg. This airbase was once the cradle of military aviation in the Netherlands. At the end of the route you will arrive at Hotel Kontakt der Kontinenten. This hotel is beautifully situated between the woods, so you can relax in a natural environment.
