Kootwijkerzand

Around 1900 Kootwijk was surrounded by drifting sand. If the locals had had their way the entire area would have become woodland. The Dutch Forestry Commission took a slightly different view. In time, part of the vast drifting sand became a designated national nature reserve. This was just as well as it is the largest "living" drifting sand, the largest desert, in Western Europe, and set in one of the smallest countries at that. What you see is unique - a chain of sandy dunes created by the wind. You are allowed to roam freely. Climb the tall watchtower and choose a direction to cross the sands.
