Get ready for a nice walk through the wooded area near Amersfoort. In just over 22 kilometers you walk from the station in Amersfoort past Soest and Den Dolder to station Hollandsche Rading. That is why it is wise to go by train instead of by car; after all, you don't come back to the starting point. If you have enough time, a walk through the city of Amersfoort is a good idea. The historic city center is beautiful and you can wander through the small streets and over cozy squares full of terraces. If you are a bit tighter in your schedule, you can walk out of the city via the west side. There are several long-distance routes in the outlying area, so you will come across a lot of colored posts. It is okay to occasionally follow the poles and deviate from this route, because it is beautiful here. Just keep in mind that you do not deviate too much and do not arrive at the end point. Along the way you walk successively through the Short Dunes and the Long Dunes. Both are beautiful areas consisting of forest, heath and sand. It used to be a continuous area of dunes. After 18 kilometers you will pass the cozy restaurant Mauritshoeve. A good place for a break and a drink. From here it is about 4.5 kilometers to the end point, Hollandsche Rading station.
