Muiderberg was traditionally the bathing resort of Amsterdam. With its long sandy beaches and because the water remains shallow for a long way out, it is an ideal place to swim especially with children. Currently it is very popular with wind and kite surfers.
Surrounded by two woods, the village has a very rural atmosphere while being very centrally located, close to Amsterdam and Almere.
The leafy Brink with its band stand is the village green in the centre of the village.
The current village hall, actually located directly on the Brink, once served as a station stop for the ‘Gooische’ steam tram.
With Naarden Vesting, het Muiderslot and het Naardermeer all within cycling distance it is an excellent starting point for cultural and adventurous trips. For example, every month a trip on the Naardermeer (local lake) is organized, while the canons in the Fortress Museum (‘Vestigings Museum’) are regularly fired. There is also great shopping in the ‘Arsenal’ of Jan des Bouvrie (a famous Dutch interior designer). Located on several walking routes like the ‘Zuiderzee’ and the ‘Waterlinie’, makes Muiderberg a perfect home base for walkers and cyclists alike.
In September, the annual “Swing on the Brink” is organized. A vibrant two-day Jazz festival eagerly anticipated by the villagers who also take part.
So to say a wonderfull place in the direct surroundings of Amsterdam.
