    A little east of Amsterdam is Weesp, beautiful on the Vecht. The train takes about 15 minutes from Amsterdam Central to Weesp. The station is the starting point of the walk of just over ten kilometers.

    When you leave the station you will see the Vecht almost immediately. You walk in the direction of the marina with all kinds of boats, from large to small.

    Behind the marina you can see two mills close together. These are De Vriendschap and De Eendracht. The Friendship was rebuilt in 1900 after the old mill burnt down in 1899. It is a flour mill only 80 meters away from De Eendracht.

    The Eendracht is a lot smaller and an old sawmill. Together, the Weesp mills give a special and recognizable appearance. Molen De Vriendschap is regularly open to visitors.

    You continue along the winding Vecht until you reach Fort Hinderdam. This fort is part of the Defense Line of Amsterdam and is located on an island in the middle of the Vecht. The fort is owned by Natuurmonumenten. Many bats live there and therefore unfortunately cannot be visited.

    Just past the fort, turn right into the polder roads. A typical Dutch landscape with ditches, meadows, cows and sheep. You walk a bit along the edge of Weesp and end at the station again.
