This route takes you along the Vinkeveense Plassen and the Botshol, a quiet area! Wear waterproof shoes as the trail can be swampy!

Vinkeveense Plassen
From the hamlet of Vinkenkade you walk along the river Winkel to Café-restaurant Bon. Enjoy something delicious 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 across the quay. Here you have a beautiful view over the Vinkeveense Plassen, on the right is the Botshol nature reserve.

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