Austerlitz Things to Do

    While you are here, you should of course climb the Pyramid. Since it is no longer allowed to climb the Pyramids at Gizeh (Egypt), this is probably the next best thing. And it requires considerably less effort, because the steps are already there.

    I've never come round to making photos of the playground, a kind of fancy fair that is a nice place to take the kids for an afternoon. Combined with a walk in the woods and climbing the Austerlitz pyramid.

    The pyramid was originally built in a wide stretching heatherfield, where the army camped out in. The view was very wide, towards the Souther Sea (now "IJsselmeer") and with clear weather towards the churchtowers of Amerfoort, Utrecht and even Breda! Now-a-days the heatherfield has made way for trees and a wonderful forest is hiding the pyramid from first view. The forests invite for a long and healthy walk and many paths are going towards all directions.

    Wonderful green surroundings of Austerlitz

    Austerlitz has no connection, but one by road, to the outside world. The village itself is very small, even miniscule and is hidden in the deep forests of the Utrecht "heuvelrug" (hill-range). By car, or by bike and over long distance walking routes, one reaches the village and the puramid of Austerlitz.

    Well, Ilja gets around by train!

    There's a restaurant at Austerlitz, in the middle of the woods, by the road side. And this used to be a place for family meetings. Like ours in 1965, probably a grandmother's birthday or something. The photo brings back fond memories of those that are on it. Of course I can't remember anything of it!

    Where there is a point of interest, there are people that want to benefit from it. This must have been the case of the one that built a mini lunaparc near the pyramid especially for children. Some funny attraction draw children and families here and Ilja too had a nice time in the few merry-go-rounds, carroussels and other attractions.

    Favorite thing: Here is a picture of the information bulletinboard that one can find near the pyramid. I hope that the picture - enlarged - is sharp enough for those who are interested in all the exact data.
