Local Attrac­ti­ons


Spring, sum­mer, autumn or win­ter: the forest is well worth a visit wha­te­ver sea­son. Green bud­ding lea­ves in the spring, an explo­si­on of pur­ple moors in the sum­mer, beau­ti­ful autumn colours and tran­quil win­ter splen­dour. Hoog Hol­ten bor­ders the Pie­ter­pad, a long dis­tan­ce wal­king rou­te. Other walks or bike trails start just at the front door. We will pre­pa­re a pic­nic bas­ket with deli­cious food to take along.
