10 Things to Do in Bunnik That You Shouldn't Miss

December 14, 2017 Renato Branum

Bunnik ( pronunciation (help·info)) is a municipality and a village in the Netherlands, in the province of Utrecht. The recorded history of the village dates back nearly 2000 years, when the Romans constructed a fort at Fectio (now Vechten) with a harbour facing the river Rhine, which marked the border of the Roman Empire. The fort developed into a thriving trading centre, which continued to exist after the Romans abandoned the fort in the fourth century. Subsequently, the area was occupied by the Frisians and the Franks. In the 8th and 9th century the villages of Bunninchem (Bunnik), Lodichem (Odijk) en Wercundia (Werkhoven) developed.

Snack service to your chair and comfortable sofa style seats make this a first class cinema. The screens aren't the largest but the other amenities easily make up for that.

Canals area

Reviewed By Rallie S - Stirling, United Kingdom

There are lots of cafes, bars and shops of all types (incl. antiques) along the canals, as well as more quiet areas, so there is something for everyone. Mostly it's less crowded than Amsterdam although in the centre it could get quite busy (beware of the cyclists). The old houses along the canals are beautiful. It's definitely a lovely walk.

MOA

Reviewed By bas k - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The beautiful country-house has been converted into a small museum offering modern art in historic 18th century rooms.I enjoyed the historic "chinoiserie"wall papers and murals and stuffed birds and animals of the temporary expo.The wooded area around the country house is home to badgers,woodpeckers and other protected wildlife.Due to construction of a highway nearby there is increased media attention about this nature reserve and the threats to its trees by urban development.

National Military Museum

In the NMM at the former Soesterberg air base, the past, present and future of the Dutch armed forces come together. See our impressive collection at first hand and experience for yourself the exciting stories of our armed forces at the biggest museum about the Dutch military! The NMM has the most extraordinary collection of tanks, aircraft, armoured vehicles and helicopters in the Netherlands! Each one of them is unique and has its own story. Personal objects and moving stories also come to life at the NMM. You will be amazed how the Dutch armed forces are interwoven with the world around you!

Reviewed By Hansje - The Hague, The Netherlands

The Netherlands National Military Museum tells the story of the Netherlands Army and Air Force over centuries. It's only a couple of years old and definitely on par with the some of the worlds best technological museums; e.g. the Smithsonian museums in Washington. Well worth more than one visit, suitable for all ages.

Landgoed Oostbroek

Reviewed By CGH67 - Leesburg, Virginia

Landgoed Oostbroek is owned by the Utrecht Landschap and is not far from the University of Utrecht in the Uithof. It is about 80 hectares and consists mainly of Forests, meadows and an orchard. IT has several short hiking trails that provide a neat overview of the variety in the Dutch landscape and old estates that have been modeled after the English estates. One of the nicest places is a wide ditch (I cannot call it a pond). There is always something to see. During my last visit we saw many frogs, a ring-necked snake swimming, butterflies and many birds. Oostbroek also has a small shop/cafe where you can order some coffee and cakes. You can also buy various natural products. If you have an hour of the time it's fun walking here and getting a drink.

Rietveld Schroder House

Reviewed By bonsi7 - Bardolino

One-of-a-kind Rietveld house. All of the downstairs rooms have an external door. The panels that closed at the end of the day are fantastic, cutting off part of the external light. A 30 minutes' walk from the center of town should not put you off. Entrance is a bit expensive, but includes the entrance fee to the Central Museum (on the same day). The tour includes an audio guide backed up by a well informed live guide.

Waterliniemuseum

Reviewed By Erik1964 - Overloon, The Netherlands

The Dutch always had an ambivalent relationship with water. There are several museums on this topic in The Netherlands. However, the new Waterliniemuseum focusses on the way water was used as a defensive system, mostly against enemies coming from the east. The museum was opened in October 2015 and features some modern, attractive interactive presentations, for instance using Oculus Rift glasses to simulate a parachute jump over the country. Furthermore, it is beautifully located in the Fort Vechten. So, although the museum itself takes only about an hour to go through, the surrounding landscape could keep you busy for another. No setbacks? The only thing we can think of is the outside maquette of the Dutch river system. This is a major eye-catcher meant to be the biggest interactive of the museum. But, as we found out, it was out of order and needed to be repaired at the time we visited the museum. Surely this will be done anytime soon.

Dom Tower

Reviewed By Antonija R

There is no better way to see Utrecht other than the Don Tower. I don’t get visitors from my home country frequently but as soon as someone comes I take him/her there. The Dom Tower has a history spread through several centuries but moreover it has a culture represented through 14 bells and old organ. It allows a great view over Utrecht and when the weather allows it Amsterdam can be seen.

Fort Vechten

Reviewed By Zwarte_Leeuw - Sliedrecht

Groot en aardig fort. Vooral de gracht er omheen en de daarbij behorende wandelpaden zijn mooi. Binnen in het fort kun je even rondkijken, maar is niet echt bijzonder.
