A day at the Utrechtse Heuvelrug National Park equals a day of enjoyment. Relax in the woods of this beautiful nature reserve.
You drive through the heart of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug. In this national park, heaths, open sand plains and deciduous and coniferous forests alternate in a gently sloping landscape. It is a wonderful area to relax and leave the everyday hustle and bustle behind. You will pass through the old Zeister forests, among other things. The ransom paid for the kidnapping of Freddy Heineken was buried here for a while in barrels.
Just past Austerlitz you can take a trip to the famous Pyramid of Austerlitz. A little later you drive along the Leusderheide to the old Den Treek estate. A farmhouse from 1337 once stood here. In 1807, Huize Den Treek was converted into a real country estate by the new owner. The route ends in the middle of the woods at Woudschoten Hotel & Conference Center, a beautiful location where you can spend the night comfortably and in peace.
The Pyramid of Austerlitz
If you turn right at junction 2, you will soon reach the Pyramid of Austerlitz. From the top you have a beautiful view of the beautiful surroundings. Built in 1804 by the French army, this pyramid is a tribute to Napoléon Bonaparte.
