Walking the Westerbork path

Last Saturday I walked a part of the Westerbork path in Holland with a couple of friends. Westerbork is the name of a Transit Camp in the Netherlands from where Jews were transported to Germany in World War II. The path totals 342 km and follows the railway line from Amsterdam to Camp Westerbork. More information (in Dutch) can be found here.

We followed the route Weesp – Muiden – Muidenberg – Naardermeer – Bussum.
