City trips

Interesting cities to visit in the vicinity of out Scout centre are Utrecht, Amersfoort and Amsterdam.

Utrecht is small medieval town, build around the Dom tower. It is just a 30 minute train ride from Baarn. It has a car-free city centre so it is very easy to get around by foot. Stroll along the ancient canals and wharf cellars and enjoy the cozy atmosphere of a small university-town.


Amersfoort is a small town, just 10 minutes away by train from Baarn. Amersfoort has a compact city center that has many nice monumental houses. It is much smaller than Utrecht and therefore an ideal destination for half-a-day.


Amsterdam is the famous capital city of The Netherlands. Enjoy the Dam Square, the Palace. Take a trip on a canal boat, take a look at the famous paintings of Rembrandt and van Gogh in the Rijksmuseum and visit the Anne Frank House. It takes 45 minutes by train from Baarn to get to the monumental Amsterdam Central Station.
