    This route is one of my favorites. I love the winding narrow roads along the idyllic Gein. Moreover, you do not have to pay attention to anything other than the environment, because it is practically impossible to go wrong.You leave and end at Abcoude station. It takes 20 minutes from Amsterdam Central Station. From Amstel station it is even only 12 minutes.You walk past the station and the track until you can cross the track a little further. You start on the right bank of the Gein and keep following it until Fort Nigtevecht. You can also cut off a piece via the Liniedijk.Fort bij Nigtevecht is located right on the Amsterdam-Rhine Canal. From the water, however, the fort is quite hidden in the green. Large parts of the fort are still intact, which makes it worth a visit.After the fort, head towards Proeflokaal Anna Haen, a nice place for a break. Especially taste the local products sold here and bring something to take home.You walk back to Abcoude via the other bank of the Gein. If you want you can also take a look at Fort Abcoude.Fort near Abcoude is made of brick. That is unique for a land fortress of the Defense Line of Amsterdam. The outer walls of the fort are 1.80 meters thick. From the viewpoint you can see Fort Nigtevecht. You can visit the fort, check the website for opening times.
