Historic Sites
Park your car opposite Café & Terrace Beauforthuis, in the middle of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug. Before you get on your bike, start with a nice cup of coffee and something delicious from the organic menu. The Beaufort House is also a theater café, so who knows, you might linger even longer for a concert or theater performance. The route continues to Austerlitz. Napoleon founded an encampment on the heath, but left it behind as a penniless settlement. This was the beginning of Austerlitz. A little further on you will pass the Pyramid of Austerlitz, which was built by order of Napoleon. You will also pass Koepel van Stoop, a country house on one of the highest points of the fairytale Henschoten estate.
