    The Vecht, the local river

    by pieter_jan_v Written Sep 7, 2014

    The Vecht is going through Vreeland and as such you'll find some typical Dutch bridges to cross this river.

    The river was the main route from Utrecht to the sea in the past. Nowadays is important for recreational vessels.

    The photo is taken from the garden of the neighbour where I lived next to.
    It's just fun to sit in your front garden and watch the boats go by. In the old days there would be a 'clog' where the skippers would donate a few coins for the bridgekeeper. I haven't noticed if this is still the custom in 2005 but it was in the 80s.

    The bridge

    The bridge is the center of the village, over the river Vecht, connecting the old northern part with the newer southern part.
    During season, the bridge opens several times in an hour to let boats (mostly yachts) pass by. The bridge is electric and cost 1 million guilders some 20 years ago. When I lived there, it was still mechanical and made a lot of noise which was actually the whole charm of it.

    The central Church

    by pieter_jan_v Written Sep 7, 2014

    The old reformed church dates from the 13th century. Later additions were made through the ages.
    The former prison was located in the basement of the church.
