    Kasteel Groeneveld

    by Roeffie Updated Mar 21, 2007

    It's a kind of environmental centre of the dutch organisation Staatsbosbeheer, which is a government service that protects large areas of outstanding natural beauty in the Netherlands. If you expect a fully furnished castle you will be disappointed.

    The castle is worth a visit, It has a small art collection of the ING bank, exposition on environment and a lot of do things for kids and several things that remember of the time people lived here.

    Take a walk through the English Garden it is beautiful especially in Spring.

    If you want to grab a nice lunch. Ther is a Grand Café in the Basement, which is nice and cosy and serves a decent lunch.

    Kasteel Groeneveld is opened from Tuesday to Sunday from 11.00 hrs to 17.00 hrs.

    Adults € 4,,-

    Bikes on the street

    by ealgisi Written Apr 9, 2008

    In Holland roads bikes have the right on everybody and everything, usually they run on dedicated places at the side of roads, but it can happen that you find them on normal roads, specially in city center, so pay attention and watch carefully.

    Road speedometer

    by ealgisi Written Apr 9, 2008

    Pay attention while driving your car on the road.
    There are many speedometers ready to shot a picture of your license plates and give you a ticket. So read the road signs about speed limits.

    Speedometers are also well signaled.
