Elswout






This afternoon, I have visited the fairy tale Elswout park located near Haarlem.

This is a place with romantic passages, wooden bridges, glowing waters and hills. Its size is of 85 hectare. Entrance fees: 0,50 euro for adults, 0,25 euro per child or dog. There are 100 places for vehicles in the parking lot outside the park. It is a perfect place to go for a couple of hours in order to do some walking, jogging, do some reading, have fresh air and recharge your energies for the week to start.

The trees are more than 250 years old and that makes Elswout and ideal place for birds.








Above, "De Orangerie" where you can have some snacks, meals and drinks. It is open only on Sundays. Its grandeur fits very well in this sort of park.


It was a pleasant walking route and the spring weather was mild cold and dry.
Whooa ! It took me almost one hour to upload all the photos for this post about Elswout. I wrote one post this morning to the other blog (Inteirativa) that took me 15 minutes. Therefore... If you liked this post or any other please start placing some comments (click on "comments"). Thank you !

Anita,
Que lugar tan precioso !! Me encanto la foto del lago ... tan calmo ... rodeado de arboles y mucho verde !!
Tambien me gustaron los puentecitos de madera sobre el agua.
Donde queda este lugar?
