Description

Just below Velsen in North Holland are a number of contiguous old country estates. This route takes you over Landgoed Beeckestijn and Landgoed Velserbeek.

House Velserbeek
It is wonderful to walk through the woods and fields. In the middle of nature you pass two stone fence pillars from the eighteenth century. This monument once belonged to the former Hoogergeest Estate. Further on is the monumental farm Lievendaal. Huis Velserbeek is originally a sixteenth-century homestead. The stately park was redesigned in the late 1930s by the well-known landscape architect Leonard Springer. You imagine yourself back in time here.

Estate Beeckestijn
Landgoed Beeckestijn is one of the few completely preserved summer residences of wealthy Amsterdam regents. The former owners came out by boat across the then Wijkermeer. The current country estate originated from a seventeenth-century homestead. The lush, publicly accessible eighteenth-century garden is a feast for the eyes. And unique for the Netherlands, because you see two styles (French Baroque and English landscape style) side by side!
