Just above Amsterdam you can take a beautiful walk through the Twiske. A varied nature reserve with forests, grasslands and lots of water. So make sure you have waterproof walking shoes!

Rugged wetlands
You start the route at a parking lot on the north side of the Twiske. Centuries ago, this area consisted of peat meadows along the river Twiske. The inhabitants extracted peat on a small scale. At the beginning of the twentieth century, the soil was drained, but it turned out to be unsuitable for agriculture. Now you initially walk along rugged wetlands. You can spot many birds in this part of the Twiske.

While walking you look out over the Stootersplas which is located in the middle of the Twiske. This lake was created after sand was extracted here for the construction of the Coentunnel route. You cross over to Den Ilp to grab a terrace at Café De Drie Zwanen. As cozy as it is, your car is still at the starting point... Don't worry, you can also fully enjoy the natural beauty on the second part of the route.
