Perfect forest for vacation with dog or short runnings
Jul 2016 • Couples
We selected our rented house next to others because this nice, a little bit magic looking forest was next to it. Nicely located around Heiloo, normal ways, people mades further pathes into it. it is rather small, but big enough for a nice walk. Overall maybe 3 x 3 km. So only for short running, or walking, not for extensivve runnings. Nice the historic house in the middle, the big tree on the hill, the view to the fields. it might be disturbing, that the main railway is going through the forest - we don't mind.

Of course take care for the cyclists - own paths for them.

A beautiful spot of nature - a tranquil spot - you can spend hours walking along the many pathways which lead through the forest. A must see in summer!

I like this forest not only for the tranquil woodland nature and nearby garden plants-nursery but also it,s long history.

Heiloo was the site were WILLIBRORDUS at 690 A.D brought Christianity to this region, remembered by the old white church in the village centre.

Kattenberg is an old mound with a lime tree planted before 1700,NIJENBURG WOODLAND-HEILOOER BOS was replanted in the 18th century at the site
of an older woodland that was destroyed during the 1573 war. the Van Foreest family,descendants of Prince William 1's medical doctor during the 16th century used to live in Nijenburg great house.

This old woodland could be BODUHENNA were a war between the local tribes and Romans took place.Archaeologist found a wooden circle dating to 800 B.C a "wooden stonehenge" in this area. Heiloo means holly forest in old dutch.
