Hiking through Meijendel

Meijendel, part of the National Park Hollandse Duinen , is just around the corner from Duinrell and is an extensive wetland dune and nature reserve. Actually, the dune area consists of a variety of mini-landscapes. The variety is due to the differences in height, the influence of the sea breeze and the use of the landscape by humans. Whatever season you visit Meijendel, there are always beautiful scenes to discover during your hike!

A breath of fresh air in the Dutch Dunes

From Wassenaar to the top of South Holland stretches a narrow but varied strip of dunes. A row of dunes made by nature and mankind together. Wind and water formed the beach and the dunes, man built potato fields, extracted water from the dune soil and planted forests. In every season a visit to the dunes is a true experience. One moment you walk through open dunes, the next moment you walk through dense forests. Discover an oasis of tranquility in the middle of the Randstad.

Villas and estates

National Park Hollandse Duinen is more than just nature. Discover the cultural and historical elements in the national park and enjoy stately country estates, country houses of the 'rich and famous' and historic buildings.


From Hook of Holland to Hillegom and Noordwijk: the National Park Hollandse Duinen has 47 km long beach. Less than 4 kilometers from Duinrell Estate is the nearest long sandy beach the Wassenaarse Slag, but there are also many other nice beaches to find. These are our favorites.
