You will see many eighteenth and nineteenth century houses and farms here. What a nice atmosphere! From the Horndijk you look out over the Vuntus, one of the lakes in the Loosdrechtse Plassen. A little later you walk on the footpath between the trees and reed beds. Every now and then you have a view over the water. How quiet it is here!

Country houses
It is also nice and quiet to walk along the meandering Vecht. You will soon pass through Loenen aan de Vecht. This town enjoys a protected village scene because of the well-preserved old village center. You will see the eighteenth-century country estates Beek & Hof and Leeuwendijk. You walk back to Oud-Loosdrecht along the lakes. As a last sight you pass Fort Spion, the fortification from 1847 that was part of the New Dutch Waterline.
