Enjoy culture and nature in Zoetermeer
Zoetermeer is in the province of South-Holland. In 1962, it was designated as a centre of urban development for The Hague. Although Zoetermeer is a great alternative to staying in The Hague, it’s also worth a visit of its own.
Culture lovers will not be disappointed. Stadsmuseum Zoetermeer is well worth going to. The museum is located in a beautiful building and is dedicated to the history of Zoetermeer. Some of the exhibitions are educational, which makes it an interesting place for all ages. If you like art, head for the Terra Arts Project. The art hall is open to visitors every last Friday of the month. This is the day on which artists and art lovers come together in an attempt to engage people’s interest in art. It's also the opportunity to ask artists about their work.
Zoetermeer is also known as the 'city between parks', so you won't be surprised that the city also has loads of things to go for active holidaymakers. There are numerous cycling and walking routes, you can go horse riding or even do some geocaching. Balijbos is a great place for walks and for kids to just be themselves. Noord Aa is a beautiful nature reserve where you can go sailing and canoeing and spot all kinds of animals.
With both outdoor and indoor activities and sights, Zoetermeer is a town that you can visit all year round. If you're travelling by car, bear in mind that the roads around Zoetermeer are very busy at peak hours. A bicycle or public transport are good choices for day trips.
