"Living the lush life" Bilthoven by margaux

Bilthoven Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 1 photos

The place where I live has some 22.000 inhabitants (plus 15.000 form other villages and in summer, the campsite ofcourse!)
It's a small town surrounded by forests, bicycle roads and foot pads. However, it is the residence of Netherlands' famous weather insititute (KNMI de Bilt) and of the RIVM, institute for national health, that has also a renowned vaccination institute.
There are lots of things to do: golf, tennis, music making, ballet, hockey, soccer, bowling, snooker and ofcourse bicycling and walking. The shopping centre is small, but has all kinds of shops for every taste. A luxury bakery and a bonbonnerie, next to a lowbudget supermarket. Several shoe and clothes shops and two coffeeshops/ tearooms.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:peaceful, green, space.
  • Cons:didn't find any
  • In a nutshell:Life at it's best!

    Your description of the little market square in Bilthoven rang bells in my mind...ahhhh....the aroma of Kibbling in the air. Thanks for the memory.
