Villages in the region

As you walk, cycle or drive around the ‘Between the Rivers Lek and Linge’ area, you will encounter lovely old villages. For example, Ameide is most likely one of the oldest towns in the County of Holland. Thanks to the village's long history, Ameide has a relatively large number of monuments, including the old city hall and the Reformed church, both of which are probably the only two 17th century buildings that survived the fire purposely set by the French in 1672.

You will also pass through charming Lexmond, on the banks of the Lek. This village originated at the mouth of the Laak, a small river that connected the Zederik and Lek rivers back around 1000. Just beyond the village of Meerkerk, you will find the Bonkmolen, one of Utrecht's most beautiful post mills.
