Description

This beautiful route takes you through Heemskerk and the Noordhollands Duinreservaat. A route full of sights and natural beauty.

Water supply dunes
The route starts in Heemskerk. On your way to the center you pass the monumental St. Lawrence Church from 1891 with its striking tower. A bit further on is the village church. The tower dates from the fifteenth century, the rest of the building dates from 1629. After a short walk through the polder, you walk into the Waterleidingduinen, which are part of the Noordhollands Duinreservaat. The landscape here consists of a mix of dunes, deciduous and coniferous trees.

Castle Marquette
You pass Gasterij de Kruisberg, which is located in an old, well-preserved farm. Time for a terrace with something tasty! There is a watchtower on the 26-meter-high Kruisberg, which offers a beautiful view of the surroundings. The castle on Landgoed Marquette was built on the foundations of a thirteenth-century castle. You walk back to the starting point along the leafy Neksloot.
