Besides the rural views over the meadows, there is also plenty to do in the vicinity of the hotel. Due to its central location, you can easily reach one of the surrounding major cities such as Amsterdam and Utrecht (Abcoude train station is an 8-minute walk away), but smaller and picturesque villages such as Weesp and Muiden are also worth visiting.
Take the train and be in the heart of Amsterdam within 22 minutes. Visit one of the many museums, go sightseeing, wander the streets or settle down in one of the many restaurants.
The Fort near Abcoude is also considered the oldest land fort of the Defence Line of Amsterdam. What makes the Fort special is that it is built entirely of bricks. Thanks to Natuurmonumenten, the Fort is well taken care of. The Fort is open regularly, including on Open Monument Days and during public days.
The Fort was built between 1884 and 1887. The buildings were made of brick and bricked concrete, one of the last of its kind. Soon after World War I, the Fort ceased to serve. With the invention of the brisant grenade, it was no longer bomb-safe. In 2006, the Fort was transferred to Natuurmonumenten. The Fort is now fully restored and undergoing redevelopment.
The Fort near Abcoude is located at Molenweg 19, 1391 CG Abcoude
