Bunnik, Netherlands, is a small town in the centre of the Netherlands, close to the city of Utrecht. If you decide to stay in Bunnik, it is probably not because of the town itself, but because of the location of the town. Bunnik, Netherlands is located in the forest and with an easy bus or bike ride you can reach Utrecht, one of the most attractive cities in the Netherlands.
Booking a hostel in Bunnik, Netherlands, gives you the advantage of staying in a quiet area with lots of nature around, while still being able to visit one of the biggest and most beautiful cities in the Netherlands -- Utrecht. Utrecht is a student city, and the architecture, picturesque canals, and vibrant cafe life make it one of the most popular cities among Dutch. Despite its beauty, it does not receive nearly as many visitors as Amsterdam, creating a more authentic Dutch vibe.
On the other hand you can find rest in the forest that surrounds Bunnik. Go for a hike or rent a bike from your Bunnik, Netherlands hostel and go out exploring the region. A landmark that is not too far by bike is the Austerlitz Pyramid, which was built in honour of Napoleon.
The options for a hostel in Bunnik, Netherlands, are extremely limited, but what exists is housed inside a beautiful manor. Of course there are more hostels in Utrecht, which is only a few kilometres away, but you do not get the same quiet atmosphere or the feeling that you are in the middle of nature. If you like to explore the region, there is a similar hostel in the forest in Soest, which is about twenty kilometers away. Some landmarks may be a bit far from each by bike, but if you split your stay between these two (or more) towns as your bases, you can cover the entire region and have a nice holiday in the most woody area in the Netherlands.
