Railway walks are the best known walks in the Netherlands. They offer easy hikes from railway station to railway station. There are 46 walks available, some of them take 2 days to finish. I walked almost all of them, and chose the 5 most beautiful walks. Check them out, and above all: go hike with the Dutch Railways.
