Tales of the Kromme Rijnstreek

The Kromme Rijnstreek is on the outskirts of Utrecht. The river landscape of the Kromme Rijn (Crooked Rhine) meets the Utrecht Ridge here. This makes for a varied landscape with a range of options for walking, cycling and canoeing. Along the way are the many orchards with cherries and other fruits for which the Kromme Rijnstreek is known. There are beautiful castles and estates in the most wonderful parts of the landscape. The forts of the New Dutch Water Line are also well worth a visit. At Fort Vechten, you can also see the Roman history of the region. After all, the Kromme Rijn formed part of the Roman Limes, the border of the ancient Roman Empire. The towns of Bunnik, Odijk, Vechten, Werkhoven, Cothen, Langbroek, Wijk bij Duurstede, Houten, 't Goy, Tull en 't Waal and Schalkwijk are located within the Kromme Rijnstreek.
