Overview

Hike from the Caracasbay  to the top of the Kabrietenberg (78 meters high) which is the Dutch word for Mountain of the goats. 

Highlights of this trip:

  • Fort Beekenburg which was built in the beginning of the 18th century (1703)
  • Quarantaine building
  • View from the top of the Kabrietenberg

The hike starts at the parking place in front of the last restaurant at the Caracasbay. From there we walk towards the fort. We enter the fort and take a look at the old waterbuilding that was used as a watertank for the hospital that was here in the past.

We continue our hike towards the Quarantaine building and from there we start going uphill to the top of the Kabrietenberg. There we enjoy the view, take a rest and then descend to go back to the starting point.

Especially on the Kabrietenberg the terrain can be rough and sharp so bring good shoes. Also bring sufficient water for the trip.
