During the Red Cross Blossom Month you can walk one or more routes whenever you want. The routes are all freely accessible and pass through various orchards. There are NO route signs along the road. So check the map regularly.

👉You can come to Geldermalsen or Beesd Stations by train or car and start walking from there. There are few parking spaces at Station Beesd, so we recommend that you park at the Stapelbakker on Landgoed Mariënwaerdt. When you return, you can relax there with a cup of coffee, sandwich or pancake.

👉Always follow the traffic rules on the road, respect nature and throw your waste in the bin.

Discover Dutch Fruit

The Netherlands is known for its many types of fruit. From apples to cherries; they are all grown in the Netherlands. The blossom marks the start of the new growing season, an important moment for all fruit growers. Blossom not only creates a beautiful image, each blossom bud eventually becomes a delicious fruit.
