Ruta que ens portarà de Utrecht fins a Gouda passant per Oudewater. El camí d'anada no té gaire encant i passa força estona paral·lel a la carretera. Si bé Oudewater i Gouda si que són ciutats que val la pena visitar.
El cami de tornada bastant més interessant, sobretot el tall que travessa el llac de Reeuwijk (Reeuwijkse Plassen). La zona permet observar una gran quantitat diferent d'aus. La major part del camí de tornada se segueix la ruta LF4a que porta directe a Utrecht. Potser només ens denviarem per visitar el castell de Haar. Fantàstic castell, val la pena visitar. 3.5 Eur jardins o 12 Eur visita guiada per l'interior del castell.
Castell

Kasteel de Haar

The oldest historical record of a building at the location of the current castle dates to 1391. In that year, the family De Haar received the castle and the surrounding lands as fiefdom from Hendrik van Woerden. The castle remained in the ownership of the De Haar family until 1440, when the last male heir died childless. The castle then passed to the Van Zuylen family. In 1482, the castle was burned down and the walls were torn down, except for the parts that did not have a military function. These parts probably were incorporated into the castle when it was rebuilt during the early 16th century. The castle is mentioned in an inventory of the possessions of Steven van Zuylen from 1506, and again in a list of fiefdoms in the province Utrecht from 1536. The oldest image of the castle dates to 1554 and shows that the castle had been largely rebuilt by then. After 1641, when Johan van Zuylen van der Haar died childless, the castle seems to have gradually fallen into ruins. The castle escaped from total destruction by the French during the Rampjaar 1672. In 1890, De Haar was inherited by Etienne Gustave Frédéric Baron van Zuylen van Nyevelt van de Haar, who was married to Baroness Hélène de Rothschild. They contracted architect Pierre Cuypers in 1892 to rebuild the ruinous castle, which took 15 years.
