This route takes you along the Vinkeveense Plassen and the Botshol, a quiet area! Put on waterproof shoes, because the path can be muddy!

Vinkeveen Lakes
From the hamlet of Vinkenkade you walk along the river Winkel to Café-restaurant Bon. Enjoy something tasty here before you walk into the Polder Nellestein. The footpath leads you here between wide grasslands. You won't have any trouble switching back. Ideal if you want to relax for a day. After a while you walk on the quay. You have a beautiful view over the Vinkeveense Plassen, to the right is the Botshol nature reserve.

The Bothol
The Botshol consists of an abandoned peat area with ponds, ditches and swamp forest. You can also spot many birds and orchids. You will also discover a wonderfully invigorating silence here. Fort de Botshol was never completed: you only see an elevation in the landscape. You then walk along two meandering rivers: the Waver and Winkel. You look out over reed beds and grassy fields with cows. Occasionally you see an ancient farmhouse. To enjoy!
