  • Nice views. Nice place to take photos like wedding photos. There is a school nearby with a very old tree in their playground area. Beautiful.

The place is a hidden gem that is not yet discovered by tourist troops unlike other places in Netherlands. Perfect for a walk with lots of romantic sceneries. You can also stop for a drink or quick bite at one of the many restaurants and cafes in the area.
