In the historic landscape to the north of the Lower Rhine, the low and wet river landscape meets the high and dry sandy soils of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug. It is a beautiful area where you can experience history again. From the Lower Rhine to the hilly areas stretches a historic landscape with imposing country estates, impressive castles, spacious manor houses, fruit orchards, pollard willows, meadows, sandbanks and flood plains. They form a sharp contrast with the rolling hills, dense forests and beautiful dune and heather fields in the higher areas of the nature area Utrechtse Heuvelrug.
