Between Noordwijk and Noordwijkerhout you will find the beautiful Nieuw Leeuwenhorst estate. This route takes you through the lush historic forests of this estate. Enjoy the changing leaves in the trees here in the fall, but also look at the ground every now and then. All kinds of mushrooms grow here that are worth admiring.

Walking on the Nieuw Leeuwenhorst estate
The starting point of this route is on the edge of the Nieuw Leeuwenhorst estate. From here you walk through this romantic landscape full of ancient forests and gems hidden in nature. Here you will find, among other things, the mirror pond, a beautiful pond that shows the mirror image of Dijkenburg country house on sunny days. Take the time to pause here and admire all the birds that live on and around the pond. If you are lucky you may even catch a glimpse of a kingfisher.

Admire mushrooms
There are also plenty of animals in the woods, such as bats that like to retreat to the bat greenhouses that have been hung here and there. Furthermore, all kinds of mushrooms grow in the autumn. There are more than 5,000 species of mushrooms in the Netherlands, so there is plenty to discover. About 50 of these mushroom species are poisonous, so be careful.

The Dome Mountain

The Koepelberg is a part of the estate that has been well preserved. The winding paths, stately avenues and vistas in this area used to be part of a lush garden. There was once a tea dome on the Koepelberg. Now you can enjoy nature that takes on the most beautiful colors in the fall.

An autumn nature game is organized for children every year in the Leeuwenhorstbos. Look here for more information.
