Green areas; do these still exist in the Randstad? Certainly! Visit recreational area Spaarnwoude between Haarlem and Amsterdam. Here, you can bike, walk, swim, golf, ski, canoe or ride a kick scooter through the panoramic polders and forests far away from the bustle of the city.
For a trip on a kick scooter, you start at De Watergeus, an outdoor centre that offers multiple activities. Here, you can get on a kick scooter with large tyres (so not like the ones you might know from your childhood) for a lovely route through the recreational area. For instance, ride to the village of Spaarndam, visit the striking church Stompe Toren in Spaarnwoude or visit the age-old cultural landscape Houtrak, right next to the Amsterdam port.
Nice to know!
In the church of Spaarnwoude, you can view art from regional artists on all Sundays from May to October. The church is opened from 12.00 to 16.30 during these exhibitions and access is free.
