Get ready for a long and wonderful day at the coast. This walking route takes you along the beach, through Egmond aan Zee and through the beautiful Noordhollands Duinreservaat. Time enough? Then pay a visit to the Prince Henry the Navigator Museum.
Egmond aan Zee
Your walking pace may be a bit slower on the beach, but that gives you every opportunity to enjoy the surf and the view over the sea. And when the weather is nice, you can take a dip. Don't forget to look the other way, because on the boulevard, as it should be in a seaside resort, there are still beautiful houses from the early twentieth century.
North Holland Dune Reserve
You enter the Noordhollands Duinreservaat under Egmond aan Zee. This nature reserve consists of an alternation of dune tops, bushes and an unprecedented silence. You can buy your entrance ticket at one of the entrances with a pin or credit card. The site of the administrator PWN explains how to do this using your smartphone.
Prince Henry the Navigator Museum
The route takes you along, among other things, an impressive white building on the Voorstraat. This is the former home for former sailors and their partners. Today, this monumental building houses senior housing, as well as the shipping museum named after Prince Hendrik the Navigator, brother of King William III. In 1874, the prince laid the symbolic foundation stone of the house. The showpieces of the museum are the ship models, the maritime paintings, antiques and other curiosities. The stained-glass windows in the hall of the care center are also a real eye-catcher: it depicts the life of the sailor from the cradle to the grave. Do you want to see even more of the surroundings of Egmond aan Zee? Then cycle the routes 136825 and 136826.
