Diemer Vijfhoek, The Netherlands

21 May 2018

A walk from the outskirts of Amsterdam to the Diemer Vijfhoek, a small nature reserve along the IJmeer.

Starting at the Flevopark in eastern Amsterdam.

Then along the Amsterdam-Rijn canal.

A lock along the canal.

Underneath the Zeeburgerbrug, a highway bridge across the canal.

More views of the canal.

And the futuristic pedestrian and bicycle bridge, called "Nesciobrug".

Then through the Diemerpark.

The remnants of the coastal battery and fortifications at Diemerdam.

And finally, into the Diemer Vijfhoek.

The walk.
