The de Hoge Rielen is organised for cyclists and walkers. So, you can enjoy your stay in peace and without worries. 

The domain of the de Hoge Rielen is huge! It is, therefore, best to plan enough time for trips on foot. On the domain, you will find indications that efficiently guide walkers and cyclists.
