'Het Groene Hart': The Green Heart of Holland

Experience the typical natural surroundings of Holland in their purest form at the Green Heart (in dutch "Het Groene Hart"). Enjoy a beautiful sunrise and cows and sheep in the evening mist. Quiet places and picturesque views. You can find wide-open reed beds, flowery hay meadows and rare bog woodlands in this unique and natural oasis in the Green Heart of the densely populated province of South-Holland. Walking, cycling and even a game of golf - these are all possible. Water sports of every kind in the Green Heart on the Nieuwkoop, Loosdrecht and Vinkeveen lakes. Spend a day helping the farmer or take a look around the dairy farm. A visit to Amsterdam, Utrecht or Rotterdam just 20 minutes away. In short... something for everyone.
