This must be a hidden treasure because the Yellow Pages (Gouden Gids) doesn't mention it, nor my favourite restaurant website.
Favorite Dish: After a walk in Soesterduinen, it's a great stop for lunch. Simple menu, well executed. Good steaks and super goulash soup for which you will want to return.

The museum is run and maintained by old airforce men that are now pensionares. They help out in the management as well in all lines of activities that keep the museum going. Herewith a special thanks for these great guys, doing a great job.

If you take the Lorentzlaan from the Rademakerstraat and keep on walking, you will eventually walk into the sound wall of the A28 route. Go right and walk along it, on the bike path. Within 100 metres or so you can cross the A28 route by a bridge on your left. Once you have crossed the bridge, go right and take the next path on your left. Follow it until you reach a crossing with a broad forest path. On the right corner in front of you, you will see a pit. This pit was dug as a water well by soldiers of Napoleon, who were camped nearby and who suffered from the wet climate and boredom. To prevent problems, the general invented several pastimes, among which was the digging of this water well. It was used for some time in the 1950s and 60s as an amphittheatre, but has returned to being, just, a pit in the forest.
If you have the energy, you can take a left from the crossing just described and head for Austerlitz, where the general inspired the men to build a small earth pyramid in remembrance of the battle of Austerlitz.
