Personal Notes

I walked this trail from Abcoude to Weesp. The walk along the Gein is picturesque. Fort Nigtevecht was open. I have already been here the week before by bicycle so did not stop. Nigtevecht is a quiet village and further north is a noteworthy mansion on the banks of the Vecht. The walk over the open farmland was a highlight for me, for a moment I was completely alone and in silence. Weesp is an interesting town too, will have to return to discover it more thoroughly. Contact phone is for Natuurmonumenten Bezoekerscentrum (Visitor Centre) Gooi en Vechtstreek. Natuurmonumenten looks after the Forts.
