For the nature lovers, we recommend the “Zuiderheide” trail. This trail takes you 4.6 miles (7.4 km) through the wonderful moorland. The trail takes you past old burials hills from the first people who lived here 5000 years ago. The moorland is now inhabited by herds of cows, deer and various kinds of birds. But most remarkable are the sand drifts, also known as the white mountains, after which our hotel is named. These sand drifts that stand like large dunes in the middle of the landscape were once bigger, but they are still impressive.
Walking around Hilversum
Van der Valk Hotel – de Witte Bergen is surrounded by the heath land of the Gooi Nature. Hilversum offers plenty of opportunities for a beautiful stroll, with the opportunity to view astounding estates and nature monuments.
The famous Dudokroute through the city center of Hilversum takes you past the unique buildings of the architect Dudok.
North of the center of Hilversum, the longest nature bridge in the Netherlands can be found. In the middle of the Gooi Nature. Definitely worth it!
In the immediate vicinity of our hotel you will also find the beautiful forests between Hilversum and Baarn and the Lage Vuursche. For the experienced hiker, it is a breeze from the hotel. For the less experienced, you can first drive a bit by car and then take a nice walk. Check out www.wandel.nl for more suggestions.
Book an arrangement and combine a beautiful walk through The Gooi with an overnight stay in our hotel. You are most welcome.
