NS Wandeling Kennemerduinen

NS Kennemerduinen

The 17km NS Kennemerduinen walking route runs from Santpoort Noord to Overveen stations. It passes through the National Park Zuid-Kennemerland.

This is an NS Walk (NS-Wandeling) of about 15-17km in length. The NS Kennemerduinen route starts in Santpoort Noord and finishes at Overveen station. The walking route takes you through the National Park Zuid-Kennemerland. Landscapes are mostly dunes, beach, scrub and some forest. Plenty of opportunity for bird-watching. You might see horses, Scottish Highlander cows and wild deer. A high-point is the view from De Hazenberg that is closer to Overveen.

Personal Notes

The map on this page shows both the official route and the one I took where I went the wrong way. Both train journeys took about 30-40 minutes. Was lucky to arrive at the stations within 5 minutes of departure. Download the NS App or plan through the ns.nl website. Consider possible delays. The first half of the walk was well signposted. Saw Scottish Highlander cows, deer and horses. On the map I walked further out to the beach, there was construction happening in the dunes. If looking for signs alone, hard to spot where to get off the beach. It is the first restaurant you pass at Parnassia. A short way past this I went wrong after being distracted by a phone call. I had to walk back some way. You can see this on the route. The view from the top of De Hazenberg is a highlight. Soon after the Vogelmeer has a bird-watching hut that I might return to. I went wrong again at the "Lange Vlak" and took a walking path instead of a cycle path. This was not so well sign-posted. On the map it is the southern route. Turned out to be a pleasant walk anyway, passing close to 't Wed pond. Joined the actual route soon after. The Nationaal Park Zuid-Kennemerland Visitor Centre is near Overveen. The coordinates are 52.39597, 4.59239. You might consider starting at this end to learn something about what you might see. There's a children's playground here too. If going with kids I might start here and walk to the Hazenberg and back again.
