The Kralingse Bos (Forest of Kralingen) is a place you don’t visit in winter that much, but even more in summer. The forest is suited around a big lake (Lake of Kralingen). In summer it’s nice to walk along the lake or do some sailing. Restaurant ‘De Tuin’ is a good place to go after your walk through the forest. In summertime it’s really crowded over there, as the restaurant is suited next to the lake and from the terrace you have a beautiful view.



De Tuin



The dutchies are like sunflowers. On a sunny day we open up to enjoy the sun. Why? Because, we do not have that much sunny weather in the Netherlands unfortunately. But when the sun shines, we go outside to sit down on a terrace and do absolutely nothing until our wallet is empty. One of the favourite places is restaurant De Tuin (the Garden). It is suited close to the Forest of Kralingen and has a view along the lake, really beautiful. In summer people come her early in the morning otherwise all tables are occupied.

Athletics



Going to this restaurant is one option, but you definitely must go for a walk through the forest. You can walk all the way along the lake and it’s really nice. Two windmills can be found there and you will come across a place with deers, nice for the kids! For the person who wants to do some work-outs, it’s a perfect place for running or skating. For the real diehards special running tracks are created. Do you like sailing, the lake is full with little boats. You can even rent one yourself.
