The North Holland Dune Reserve is a real must. For example, discover the oldest nature reserve here, Landgoed Bakkum. But there is also special nature to be seen outside the reserve, in former agricultural areas such as Zeerittensdijkje.

North Holland Dune Reserve
At the nice old village of Bakkum you walk through the former Bakkum Estate, from which the North Holland Dune Reserve was created in about a hundred years. You will find a beautiful dune lake with the appropriate name Meertje van Vogelenzang - there are numerous birds here, such as the kingfisher and bittern. If you want to know more about this area, pay a visit to Visitor Center De Hoep, the route passes right by.

Bakkum has been a popular holiday spot for Amsterdammers for over a hundred years, but it is also beautiful here outside the summer. Find peace and quiet in special nature reserves such as Zeerittensdijkje, just off the beaten track. This former agricultural area is now a sparse grassland with moist and dry areas, where plants such as marsh marigold, reed orchid and cuckoo flower can be seen.
