Kralingen, Rotterdam

The Kralingse Bos forest encircles the Kralingse Plas lake and covers 200 hectares. The lake was created towards the end of the 19th century as a result of peat extraction.

Today, we took advantage of the warm (28°) and sunny weather to cycle to this wonderful part of Rotterdam. The tour of the lake is about 5km long, and offers great views of the city’s skyline.

 

 

La forêt de Kralingen entoure le lac du même nom et couvre 200 hectares. Le lac fut créé à la fin du 19e siècle sur un terrain d’extraction de tourbe.

Aujourd’hui, nous avons profité des excellentes conditions météorologiques (28°) et avons enfourché nos bicyclettes pour nous rendre dans ce joli coin de Rotterdam. Le tour du lac fait à peu près 5km et offre de belles vues sur la ville.
