On the outskirts of Delft you will find the Delftse Hout: a nature reserve with arboretum and heme park. You can enjoy the greenery just a stone's throw from the city! Today you start with a terrace between the old chestnut trees at Het Rieten Dak, along the canal between the Grote Plas and the Deer Camp. This is an ideal base for your discovery of the Delftse Hout, a beautiful recreation and nature area. It consists of an old city park (Hertenkamp) with old trees and a unique peat area with canals and ponds. A little later you walk into the woods and wet meadows of the adjacent Bieslandse polder. This area has a strong connection with the city of Delft. The water from this polder was once used by Delft breweries, later the peat from this area disappeared in stoves. You can spot many water birds in the Bieslandse polder, just like on the Grote Plas.
