Bicycle route along castle Sypesteyn
Nieuw-Loosdrecht, Tienhoven, Egelshoek, Hilversum
Why is Loosdrecht divided into Oud-Loosdrecht and Nieuw-Loosdrecht? That has everything to do with churches. Oud-Loosdrecht had a church and Nieuw-Loosdrecht (then still called Sijpe) a chapel. The part with the old church became Oud-Loosdrecht, the part with the new church became... You see. Near the Sijpe there was a farm, Sijpesteijn. The noble Sypesteyn family thought that the chapel in Sijpe was the castle chapel of their ancestral castle. Evidence for this has never been found. At the beginning of the 20th century, however, jonker Sypesteyn had a castle built on the site of the old farm.
