Nederhemert Things to Do
What few streets are here are very pretty ones. Lined by trees, they form a beautiful backdrop in any season.
This building is very cute and is surrounded that a few houses. There's not much to look at beside it's quaint location but the playground is nearby where you can have a drink and rest your feet.
One thing you will find in abundance here is green fields! Towards the rivers that surround the islet, there are fields everywhere. Who ever said that Holland is a built-up country?
The best way to get there is by car! From Den Bosch, take the A59 towards Waalwijk, get off at exit 42, drive across the bridge past Heusden and turn left Ammerzoden. You turn under the bridge, cross the river and you're almost there.
From Wijk, my childhood town, Nederhemert-Zuid is the closest village next to it, but the river Maas happens to be in the way... Therefore we always have to take the detour to the bridge as there's no ferry either. Ah well, it keeps the place quiet I guess.
Nederhemert Local Customs
Time seems to stand still here, and it sure looks like nothing has changed here at all. To prove how little man's actions have taken hold here: this pic shows a tree that has grown through (?!) the cast-iron church fence!
Favorite thing: I would definitely take an afternoon to walk around the island (see the Travelogue for that). Afterwards, let the kids run free in the playground while you sit down and relax underneath the ancient trees!
Fondest memory: My childhood memories are priceless of course, but everytime I go back and walk around is another gem!
