Park
“The Haarlemmermeerse Bos is ideal for walking. There are a number of beautiful paths to discover, for example the tree path. The tree path is three kilometers long and runs along (un) ordinary trees in Haarlemmermeer. The path, which is partly unpaved, leads past common tree and shrub species in the Haarlemmermeerse forest. The route takes you through a total of 67 different trees and shrubs and starts behind the Historisch Museum Haarlemmermeer.”

Premise
“The De Cruquius pumping station from 1849 is one of the three pumping stations that pumped the Haarlemmermeer dry between 1849 and 1852. Moreover, it is the largest steam engine in the world. The pumping station was never modernized and was put out of operation in 1933. It belongs to the Top 100 of the Dutch national monuments.”

“Menu is all sourced from locally grown produce (some of which comes from their own garden). All I can say is that the setting couldn't be any better with a lakeside view.”
