After a cup of coffee at the Wapen van Elst, put on your walking shoes. You walk through the Amerongse Bos. Most of the forests on the Utrechtse Heuvelrug are a hundred years old, but some trees from the Amerongse Bos have been there since the 18th century. This used to be the hunting domain of the lords of the castle Amerongen. The Amerongse Bos is also a lot higher, because it is located on the Amerongse Berg. You will also discover Plantage Willem III, one of the old tobacco plantations on the warm south slope of the ridge. This plantation was founded in 1853, but at the beginning of 1900 tobacco cultivation was already becoming less profitable. In the semi-open landscape there are still a few characteristic barns in which the tobacco leaves were dried.
