Woudenberg is a village at the intersection of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug and the Gelderse Valley. The outside area therefore has two attractive areas: the forests of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug and the farmland of the Gelderse Valley.
Both areas have their own special historical monument. The Pyramid of Austerlitz is the only pyramid in the Netherlands and even the only worldwide grasszod made. On top of the monument there is a view tower that offered a great view to the French troops at that time. In the woods around there are many bike paths and hiking trails to make beautiful walks.
The Henschotermeer is located amidst the forests of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug. In this recreation pool, the summer is well-behaved.
On the other side of Woudenberg the Grebbelinie intersects the rural area. The Grebbelinie with the adjacent Valleikanaal is a waterline and during the Second World War this line played an important role. The many bunkers are still silent witnesses of this battle. It is not yet known that the Grebbelinie has been built much earlier in the 18th century to stop the French troops. In 2014, Post Lambalgen was completely redeployed to this time. And in the museum de Grebbelinie in the Vizier revive the times of mobilization.
The Grebbelinie is not only a cultural historical monument, it is also a place that the recreant has a lot to offer. Biking trails, hiking trails, canoeing, rafting: The Grebbelinie offers many possibilities.
