On the estate you will find a viewing hill, the Koepelberg, with a view of country house Dijckenburch, lots of forest and a mirror pond.

There are information boards with animals and plants present.

In World War II, the estate was confiscated by the Germans. Remains from that time include a system of trenches and several bunkers.
