The trail is mostly easy. However some parts are made of loose sand which can be a bit challenging. The scenery is nice but not spectacular though halfway there is a stretch along the beach. The trail runs mostly through a conservation area for which a ticket is mandatory (ranging from € 1,80 per day to € 12,50 per person per year). There is a vending machine near the parking lot at the start or the trail and one when leaving Bergen aan Zee (if you do the trail clockwise (which I would recommend). Or tickets can be purchased on-line at Pwn.nl/natuur/duinkaart . In the conservation area you can find wild horses and wild cattle. Dogs must be on a leash.

Redid the trail with a slight variation to catch more climbing in the last 3 kms. Saw a lot of wildlife today: wild horses, bizons, deer and birds

Nice trail with variety in nature. Not very muddy. Dogs are allowed.

From Zandvoort aan Zee train station to Santpoort Noord train station: a hike across the beach, the hilly dunes and the forest of Kennemerland National park. Expect unpaved trails with loose dune sand; Few short climbs, nowhere too steep.

Nice path also for smaller kids.

Good, nice and lot of variation. Nice restaurant Johanneshof.

Nice area however major parts of the track are public roads open for all traffic. So this trail is more suitable for bicycles.

Again and again like ..... on the beach of Egmond to Bergen and through the dunes back (Duincard 1Day solve) A very nice circuit then about 13 km, in the dunes partly beautiful lonely paths with the chance of free-roaming wild horses or Longhorn To meet cattle like we did 2 weeks ago.

Very nice weekday hike with hardly anybody around, except few people by the lake Oosterplas. Herd of sheep resting in the shade. Will be back soon with childcarrier and kids

Too many people / joggers and dogs are not allowed, not even at the leash .. {had to leave my dog in the car}

Not to hard to do. Kind of flat trail. Some of it was forrest. Some dunes an some open spaces. Many deer and woodpeckers. Busy trail with many people At least the weather was great.

It's a nice ride for a bike tour, which shows you a typical Dutch landscape with cows and sheep, vast grass lands, skies and clouds, and lots of water. It's also possible to do this route by rollerblading, but it's less convenient as a walking trail.

Bit windy, the route then

Easy city stroll

Nice route, unfortunately all over tarmac. The little boat ride over the Amstel is great though.

Amsterdam is a very interesting city and this tour gives you an amazing impression of it. Don't forget to stop at 'De Bakkerswinkel', Warmoesstraat 69, for breakfast/lunch/high tea. Really good food! I visited the museum 'Onze Lieve Heer Op Solder', which was beautiful.

I took a 30 minute train from Amsterdam to this park early July.. it was spectacular! There’s so many walking, biking, and horse back riding trails that all criss cross each other. The little beach area is very clean, intimate, and offers some shade. The multiple biomes that are present are all so distinct. Definitely not a very strenuous hike, but there were some sand dune hills to traverse that got your heart rate up! Definitely recommend this National Park for anyone who wants to get outta the city and retreat into the wilderness!

Great sights - the canal tour is a must!!

I lived in de Pijp for 3 years before moving to the US... great memories. This walking tour is great! It describes some buildings close to my old house that I never paid any attention to. I hope to go back soon and follow this tour.

Amsterdam is one of the favorite cities I have ever visited. It is a city full of history, art, and culture, and this tour lets you explore all of that. The highlights during my trip were walking along the many canal streets (pretty much every street), going to the Van Gogh museum (excellent), and going to the Amsterdam History museum, where I learned a lot about how the town developed and became an integral part of European trade and world trade. There are so many great and different things to do here that you will never want to leave.
