De mossel

National Park ‘De Mossel’

In 2019 a collaboration arised between Hotel van der Valk Leusden- Amersfoort and the Municipality of Leusden to develop a natural area where hotel guests as well as residents can benefit from.

It is a newly planted piece of nature around a pool of water. An optimal use of soil provides a natural habitat for rare species of flowers and plants and also birds and other insects.

A walk through this area brings along a sense of history of the ‘Grebbelinie’. In the second world war, 1940, Dutch soldiers were stationed here to wait for the German attack.
