Netherlands Sports & Outdoors: 38 reviews and 45 photos
Close to our home you will find the Nieuwkoopse Plassen. It is a nature lovers paradise. The lake was originally formed when the people won turf here. They dug so deep the groundwater came to the surface. Villages became isolated and the waters threathened life here. Windmills were placed and many polders were milled dry. The Nieuwkoopse Plassen remained and are now a nature reservation area.
You can rent a canoe and discover its beauty.
