Do you love autumn? I am crazy about it. The Netherlands is a wooded country and how nice and healthy it is to take a walk or bike ride through a forest on a regular basis. Autumn is so very colorful. Leaves are changing color, the air is humid, it is getting dark earlier, the air is humid and mushrooms are sprouting from the ground.
Beautiful large forests in the Netherlands can be found in National Park the Veluwe, the Utrechtse Heuvelrug, Lage Vuursche, Amelisweerd, Amsterdamse Bos, the Posbank, the Unholy Forests, and the Biesbosch. If you look at the map of the Netherlands, despite the fact that it is a small country, you will see large green areas with forests. Every province is rich in beautiful forest areas.

Village and National Park forest Lage Vuursche
One of my favorite walks is through the forest of Lage Vuursche. Castle Drakenstein is located in the village of Lage Vuursche. Princess Beatrix, the former Queen of the Netherlands, and the mother of King Alexander live in this castle. The former queen lives in a beautiful wooded area. The woods of Lage Vuursche are near Amsterdam and easy to travel to. If you like to bike you can make a tour from Utrecht to Lage Vuursche Forrest. Village the Lage Vuursche is lovely with some nice small restaurants. From the village, you walk by Castle Drakenstein into the woods.

At the end of your walk, spent some time in the “restaurant the Kuil of Drakenstein, and have a nice fresh Ginger tea and a healthy and tasty sandwich.
Another forest where I like to walk and cycle around is Amelisweerd. This forest is located near Utrecht.
