Food Scene
Loetje is THE restaurant for the perfect steak, of course with delicious gravy and white bread. A must, typically Dutch. Loetje is a very popular restaurant in Breukelen. If you have not booked, there is sometimes a waiting time, but when the weather is nice, waiting for the large terrace with a Dutch beer with some ' bitterballen snacks' is certainly not a punishment.

Small restaurant on an island in the middle of the meadows. The Island in the Pasture is a real island where two rivers (the Heicop and the Bijleveld) come together in the middle of the green heart of the Netherlands. Adventurous food for a reasonable price. Products on the menu are of sustainable origin: free range meat, non-endangered fish species and vegetarian dishes. Because the island is higher than the surrounding meadows, people look "in" the pasture, as it were. This gives a beautiful view. The terrace is located on the water on the side where the sun goes down, through which beautiful skies can be admired. Only open at Thur, Fri, Sat, and Sun. www.heteilandinhetweiland.nl

Sightseeing
A visit to De Haar Castle is a journey of discovery to a marvelous world. There are only a few castles in Europe that have the same ideal image of a medieval fortress with towers and ramparts, with canals, gates and drawbridges as De Haar. The castle - which is the largest and most luxurious castle of The Netherlands - was entirely restored and partially rebuilt in the late 19th century and it rises like a real fairy-tale castle from a park with large trees, surrounded by old gardens and ponds. The park and gardens surrounding De Haar Castle - covering 135 acres of land - are worth a visit in their own right. Nice tours inside & outside the castle for children as www.kasteeldehaar.nl

This rough fortification from 1880 is part of the Nieuwe Hollandse Waterlinie -1815-1940-, an important line of defense in Dutch history. 46 forts over a length of 85 km between Muiden and the Biesbosch guarded and if necessary the polders inundated to a height of 40 centimeters so that the enemy with horses and vehicles could barely push through. The fort is VVV Information Point and base of the Dutch sole polder keeper Marcel Blekendaal. Forester without forest but with meadows. Marcel likes to take you through his "polders" where he tells beautiful exciting stories with a pole in his hand on clogs. Book a tour with Marcel? Then look at polderwachter.nl.

Castle Nijenrode is located on the banks of the river Vecht. The castle has a rich history dating back to the 13th century and is now home to the Nyenrode Business University.

Unfortunately the castle and park can not be visited each day. Check www.vechtstreekmuseum.nl or www.ivn.nl/afdeling/vecht-en-plassengebied for special guided tours.

In een tijd dat kastelen al lang verleden tijd waren, bouwde jonkheer Henri van Sypesteyn een nieuw kasteel op de plek waar ooit al een burcht had gestaan. Dit bouwwerk moest Loosdrecht op de kaart zetten voor toeristen. Het Kasteel Museum was en is nog steeds een groot succes. In het museum toont verzamelingen van heer Van Sypesteyn. De collectie bestaat onder andere uit schilderijen, keramiek, glas en wapens. Wat uniek is in dit museum is de grote verzameling Loosdrechts porselein. Dit porselein is zeer zeldzaam. Het Kasteel beschikt ook over een tuin. De tuin bestaat onder andere uit een doolhof, een boomgaard en grachten.

Fancy a day in the woods nearby? Then take the car to Hilversum and drive within 30 minutes, via the provincial road N201 to Visitor Center Gooi en Vechtstreek in 's Graveland. This is the ideal starting point for a forest walk or bike ride. Over lanes and forest paths you walk past country houses that once belonged to wealthy Amsterdam merchants. Follow a route across the country estates and join the nearby Brambergen restaurant. Children lose all their energy in OERRR's Play Nature, right next to the visitor center. Snuggling with water and sand and climbing!

Ridderhofstad Gunterstein was built in 1680 on the ruins of a medieval castle. At the same time as the construction, a park was built at the house, which in the 19th century has partly been transformed into an English landscape park. The entire site is no less than 115 h. big. Walk on the winding paths between the ancient trees and enjoy the sight axis on the house through the long Lindelaan. Gunterstein is a half hour walk and 8 minutes by bike from our holiday home towards Breukelen, park entrance opposite the Vecht bridge.

Imagine yourself back in the 18th century, in the heyday of the rich country life on the Vecht. The park Goudestein is publicly accessible because here the mayor and aldermen of Stichtse Vecht hold office. Goudestein was built in 1754 on the site of an older country house. The park was built in the early 19th century in landscape style with winding paths, lawns and a pond. Buitenplaats Goudestein can sometimes be visited with a guide.

The Loenderveen lake is a beautiful nature reserve near Loenen aan de Vecht. We use part of the lake to purify water. We get this water from the Bethunepolder. The water comes up from the ground. We also call this water seepage water. We pump the seepage water via the Water Pipeline to a special section of the Loenderveen lake: the Waterleidingplas. In the Waterleidingplas we purify the water in a natural way. After 100 days we pump it to our branch in Weesperkarspel. We make drinking water out of that. About 1/3 of Amsterdam's drinking water comes from the Loenderveen lake. The Loenderveen lake is a unique piece of traditional Dutch nature. Many special water birds breed.
