3. Commemorate history
Situated on the border between Leusden and Amersfoort is one of the most well-known World War Two remembrance centres. The former camp has a rich history, with approximately 37,000 prisoners being held for short or longer periods between 1941 and 1945. When the war was over, people wanted to erase the horrors as soon as possible. Although the camp was reduced to only its foundations, the atmosphere remains palpable. A beautiful memorial site was created, where the events can be commemorated.

5. Sand drifts in Soester Duinen
The Soester Duinen are located to the south of Soest and the area is well-known for its large sand drifts. Places where sand drifts originate are rare in the Netherlands, and this is why the province of Utrecht has declared this area a monument.
