    HEENVLIET CASTLE RAVESTEIN

    Heenvliet, together with Geervliet are two villages within the municipality of Bernisse. It's a small village that was once the home of the Lords of Voorne. It has a castle ruin and a delightful village square.

    HEIJPLAAT

    Heijplaat, although a village in the old days, is now completely part of the harbour and industry area of Rotterdam. Although some may dispute its beauty, the industrial area is a very interesting place to drive around, make photo's of the harbour activity.

    OOSTVOORNE

    Seaside resort just 5 kms from my hometown Brielle. Lively rural village and some very beautiful houses. Around Oostvoorne some great natural reserves (dune landscape) with extraordinary flora and fauna. Easy cycling and hiking.

    ROCKANJE

    Rockanje is a popular beach destination. Visit the natural reserves Tenellaplas and Quackjeswater either on foot or by bike.

    The region has the finest dune landscape in Europe and is a paradise for birdwatchers and people interested in plants.

    See my Rockanje page, mentioned below.

    ROZENBURG POINT OF LAND

    You don't really want to visit Rozenburg. Truly! It's a village that has no charm.
    But belonging to its municipal area is a point of land called Landtong Rozenburg where you can enjoy the entry of the Rotterdam harbour with all the world's greatest ships coming in and out. You will also see the immense industry and one of the greatest feats of Dutch engineering: the Storm Surge Barrier up close.
    At the same time the Landtong is a nature reserve and birdbreeding area and you can spend an interesting afternoon here.

    BRIELLE 1ST OF APRIL FESTIVITIES

    I am proud to say that my hometown has the appeal of a miniature Amsterdam with a long history and some 400 buildings and houses that are on the monuments list.
    Lovely shops and restaurants and all touristic amenities available.

    See the link to my large Brielle page below.
