The Reeuwijkse Plassen are close to the big cities Amsterdam Rotterdam and the Hague. You can hire easily so called 'fluisterboats' meaning silent as they have electric engines. A few nice local pubs at the waterfront (who offer the hiring)

Great place for cycling, walking or a boat trip. Lots of cyclists so its better to leave your car outside the area.
