Discover Utrecht... The Vechtstreek and landscape of water

2 hours 30 minutes (42.0 km)

The area includes the lakes of the Loosdrechtse and Vinkeveense Plassen, which are popular with water enthusiasts year round. There are endless trails and paths for cyclists and walkers of all levels.

The beauty of the Vecht was already well known among the wealthy Dutch merchants around 1600 AD. They built large mansions with parks and gardens. In addition to these listed monuments, an important part of the New Dutch Water Line can be found in this area. It is precisely this combination of natural beauty and castles, mansions and fortresses that makes the Vechtstreek such a fantastic area.
