Natural Feature
“Lake, campsite and walking routes in a forest environment. You can swim in the lake when the weather is good and it's a skating venue in winter. It's also a good destination if you like to go for a morning jog.”

Restaurant
“Restaurant in African style. Though not entirely authentic. It offers a mix of African, African inspired and Western dishes. It has a indoor play area with supervision, so you can enjoy your food while the children play. Great African ambiance. Price is a bit above average; Tuesdays to Thursdays there is an attractive set meal discount.”

Campground
“This spot is a campsite, but the area around is a private estate accessible to the public. This is how this area must have looked 200 years ago. Very varied landscape with a number of walking routes to choose from.”

Meal Takeaway
“Chinese takeaway, no dine-in. Good value, fresh and quick. Every dish you order comes in a plastic box with an accompanying box of either noodles, rice or fried rice. Don't order too much, one box can almost serve two!”

Natural Feature
“Met je loopschoenen aan een heuvelachtige parcours rennen. Of 's avonds nog ff op de fiets naar deze mooie waterplas trappen? Ook voor rustzoekers een ideale plek. In het bosrijke Brabantse Alphen.”

“It offers a menu where you can order as many small dishes and thus sample the entire menu. Call in advance, at times, it's fully booked!”

Supermarket
“Alphen's biggest supermarket. It has everything you may need on a day-to-day basis, even including postal service, ATM and dry cleaning. The choice (e.g. in vegetables) is not huge. ”
