STROLLING

 

 

Doorn:

 

 

 

This monument is to be found at the start of the many paths twisting through the beautiful park Von Gimborn Arboretum just outside Doorn.

Even day at the end of February on a sunny it was a pleasure to be there. The best way is in a wheelchair, because the distances are long.

 

Furthermore you can find a very small museum the Oudheidkamer in the basement of the Town-Hall. (Gemeentehuis). Worth a visit; it has a lift.

Famous is the Castle  Kasteel Huis Doorn, in which everything has been kept in the original state after the death of Emperor Keizer Wilhelm II. From the parking lot to the castle is some hundred meters; the castle has a lift; limited access for wheel-chairs.

 

Doorn is one of the villages in the tourist-scenic-tour Heuvelrug-Autoroute and also in the Castle-route.

 

When it’s raining cats and dogs it is worthwhile to go to museum “De Weistaar” in Maasbergen. In Maasbergen follow the signs to Amersfoort and after that, there are signs along the road that guide you. It is a cheese-museum-party farm with an attractive museum part and drink and snack are available; all on the ground-floor.
