The Landscape

East of the city of Utrecht unfolds a landscape marked by distinct traces of a rich cultural history. The picturesque Kromme Rijnstreek forms the transition between the open river landscape and the foothills of the Utrecht Hills. The Kromme Rijn River once marked the northern boundary of the mighty Roman Empire. Later, due to its strategic location, numerous fortresses and defenses of the New Dutch Waterline were constructed. Nowadays, the numerous beautiful country estates with castles, forts, and manors, the expansive nature, the vibrant orchards, the meandering Kromme Rijn, the blooming meadows with pollard willows, and the marshy floodplains along the Lek contribute to a characteristic landscape that is equally attractive in all seasons.
