The inhabitants of Uitgeest have the best of both worlds: the peace and quiet of a village and the dynamism of the nearby city. Moreover, the Uitgeester- and Alkmaarder Lake with its lovely harbour is located nearby. Sports lovers can indulge in sailing and surfing lessons. Or hire a lovely sloop with the entire family and enjoy a relaxed day on the water! Prefer the slide? Then open-air swimming pool De Zien is probably for you.
Choose a trip out to sea
In the water-rich area of Uitgeest the salt water of the North Sea is never far away. And if you feel like a day of shopping then catching the train to Alkmaar or Amsterdam is easy. At Uitgeest Intercity Station a train departs for both cities every fifteen minutes. Those who would prefer to enjoy the peace and quiet of the Uitgeest countryside can hire a bike. Peddle in the highest (or lowest) gear through the fen meadows on the famous Ferryboat route. Choose a trip out to see and cross the water at least four times by ferryboat. You can operate two of them yourself with a winch!
Sleeping beside the water
Once you get back to the village, the hospitable catering sector will keep a table free for you. Would you prefer to spend the night? Bungalowpark De Meerparel has original water homes right beside the lake. Sleeping beside the water. What more could you want?
