NS Wandeling Landgoed Groeneveld

   16 km    

The NS Wandeling Landgoed Groeneveld is a 16km walking route joining Baarn and Hilversum Mediapark. It passes a castle from 1710 with English landscaped gardens. After a forest walk, the route opens into the Zuiderheide and Bussumer Westerheide heath fields which are grazed by herds of sheep and goats, and bloom purple in mid-July to mid-September.

Route Summary

Station Baarn has an interesting waiting room built in 1874 for Prince Hendrik of Orange-Nassau, son of King William II when the original train line was established.

Castle Groeneveld and its landscaped gardens are the highlight of this walking route. Built in the Rococo style in 1710 for the Hainaut Huguenot Marius de Mamuchet, it was extended in with side wings in 1760 and is now managed by the Staatsbosbeheer.

The second-half of the walk is through fields of heath. Quite rare in Europe, it is worth experiencing these summer. It can get hot - so bring water.
