The Naardermeer – roughly a 15-minute bike ride from Jachthaven Naarden – is a definite must for anyone who appreciates the Dutch waterways and everything that lives and grows in the surroundings.
Cormorants, purple herons, grass snakes and reed bunting fish all breed and can be spotted in the area. There are five locations for professional bird-watchers. While the Dutch clouds pass over the water you can experience the space around you, the natural surroundings and a wonderful sense of calm. For more information and routes see the website of Natuurmonumenten.
Tip: Hire a bike at the marina office. FREE for guests with a seasonal berth! Please make a reservation beforehand: 00-31-(0)35-6956050.
