The Bovenlanden area

The intricate structure of the waterways and the highly segregated land use have created an area that is of great importance to the landscape, cultural-historical and natural values. The Bovenlanden Aalsmeer association is committed to the preservation of this unique area. In total, this association has spent more than 1.6 million euros on nature, cultivated land and water in recent years. And that means almost 38 hectares, of which nine hectares are cultural attractions and about 29 hectares are nature and water.
