The Green Heart

The Green Heart of Holland is a National Landscapes conservation area. These areas were chosen to preserve their distinctive Dutch landscapes, with historic villages, meadows and vistas, cows and cloudy skies. Typical of the Green Heart of Holland are the bog mires, large ponds and lakes.

The Reeuwijkse Plassen are located in the middle of the Green Heart and are the result of large-scale peat extraction which was on the rise in 1600. As a result of the excavations, the banks crumbled easily, resulting in ever larger ponds. In the Green Heart old forts and farms have adorned the land since days of old. The rich diversity of agriculture, horticulture and cattle breeding form the cornerstone of a rich country life with pure local products. And the varied water landscape not only provides habitat for diverse and unusual flora and fauna but also unlimited enjoyment for all who love water sports.

The Green Heart plays a role in the green evolution towards sustainability. For innovative entrepreneurs it represents a testing ground for the development of sustainable solutions. This gives rise to all manner of new developments, such as floating greenhouses, hydrogen-powered boats, care farms, nature conservation, agro tourism and new forms of recreation such as ParqGreen Reeuwijkse Plassen.

Wonderful gouda
Gezellig Gouda

Gouda: historic heart in the Green Heart. The smell of Gouda treacle waffles tempts everyone, to say nothing of that delicious Gouda cheese. In the summer this cheese, for which the city is known, is still sold at the Thursday cheese market, a tourists' favourite.
