With this walk through and around Egmond Binnen you walk through a beautiful polder landscape. You will also discover the oldest abbey in the Netherlands.

Saint Adelbert's Abbey
Near Egmond Inside you can see the park of the Abbey of Egmond: the oldest abbey in the Netherlands, although you wouldn't say that. The St. Adelbert Abbey, founded in the tenth century, was destroyed by the watergeuzen in 1573 by order of William of Orange. It was not until 1935 that a new abbey was built that still houses a community of monks.

You walk through a landscape of tightly arranged polders and extensive peat meadows. You will see typical long plot shapes, lush reed strips and of course the Dutch high skies. Along the edge of Heiloo you walk along the Egmonderbinnenvaart to the north and back to the south via Zuiderneg, Noorderneg and Maalwater, areas that together form an elongated walking park on the western edge of Heiloo. A winding road along beautiful farms takes you back to square one via Oud-Bakkum.
