World Heritage Site

for World Heritage Travellers

Peter Alleblas Profile

Hello I am Peter and in 2009 I made my first real travels, The first travel was to Ecuador and when I came home I decided to travel 3 weeks more in my own country, The Netherlands. I discovered that I never visit a World Heritage Site in The Netherlands..... I visit them all in 3 weeks and the same I did with Belgium in the summer of 2009. Slowly I liked it more and more :-) I marked the places I visit and I was happily surprised when I found this site. So...I was not the only one that visit this kind of sites. Also I read a lot nice reviews here which helped me a lot by preparing a trip.

Update July 2018: The past years I was very busy with other things in life, my health !  So I did not travel a  lot but I not forget my passion. It is still dificult for me to make long/far away travels. This year I can only make small daytrips.  I hope I can visit all my missing sites (WHS/Tentative) in The Netherlands and Belgium this year.

Voormalige Nazorgkolonie en Sanatorium Zonnestraal (T) 23-Jul-18

Voormalige Nazorgkolonie en Sanatorium Zonnestraal (T) by Peter Alleblas

On a beautiful and sunny day in june 2018 I visited Sanatorium Zonnestraal. From my home to this site it is only a hour driving for me, so I decided to go with my car. With public transport (train/bus) it is also posible to visit this site, there is a busstop on the estate.

Provins 11-Sep-11

Provins by Peter Alleblas

On a sunny day in August 2011 I visited the medieval town Provins. I parked my car in front of the tourist office. Fortunately there where some places left in the shadow. Outside the tourist office I saw that the tourist train was waiting for passengers. Of course I decided to walk, but my first impression was good, a beautiful tourist office, free toilets, a lot of information available and a little train ! In 5 minuts I walked to fortified wall and I made some nice photos of the wall and the gate. I saw that it was possible to climb the wall a little bit, but that I was for later. First I walked slowly to the center of the town. Now I saw a little bit more tourists, but in general it was quiet. One moment I thought that I was walking in a little German town because of the similar timber-framed houses. The square was nice to see, little souvenirs shoppings, restaurants with terraces half full with visitors. From the square I saw the the Caesar Tower and that was my first goal, because I not knew till what time the tower was open. Trough picturesque streets I walked to the tower, I paid 3,80 Euro and went inside. Glady the tower was open till 6 pm. Via a lot of narrow steps I climbed higher. Inside also a movie on the walls about the life a long time ago was busy. Upstairs the view was really beautiful to the square and the Church of St. Quiriace. I was almost one hour inside the tower. Later I walked very slowly back to the center, I took something to drink on a terrace and then I went to my car. Of course I climbed a little piece of the wall on the way back. That day I visited only the upper town and for that I needed more then 2 hours. I am aware of the lower town but Provins was for me just a stop on the way to my hotel near Fontainebleau, the next destination. I liked Provins very much, and I was happy that the tower was open. Also the sunny weather is ideal to walk in towns like Provins. Walking there on a rainy day with everything closed and no tourists at all....that is boring ! With a good feeling I continued my trip through the countryside to Fontainebleau.

Primeval Beech Forests 09-Aug-11

Primeval Beech Forests by Peter Alleblas

In July 2011 I planned a long weekend Germany. After my visit to the Fagus Factory (Alfeld) I drove to the Kellerwald NP. The Kellerwald is part of the Primeval Beech Forests of the Carpathians and the Ancient Beech Forests of Germany. Kellerwald is inscribed in July 2011. I arrived late in the afternoon and decided to visit first the Kellerwald information centre. The centre is build in 2008 and easy to find at the edge of the parc. The building is very nice and I paid 6 euro for the little exhibition about the wildlife inside the parc. The information is totally made with computergraphics. Also at the end they showed a 3D-movie about the parc.
