Webcam facing the Northeast side of the Zeverijn Park, Hilversum. The Zeverijn Park in Hilversum originates from the days when the Gooi region was still densely wooded. On both the East and West side, it bordered on vast marshes, extending from the town of Loosdrecht through’s Graveland, all the way to the city of Naarden. In the 17th and 18th century, properties were bought and cultivated by rich gentry (mostly from Amsterdam but also from as far away as Germany), who built large country estates on them. In those days, the Zeverijn Park was part of the Birkenheuvel estate, reaching form the bottom of the Vaartweg to Kortenhoef and Loosdrecht. In the 19th Century, the property was sold bit by bit and eventually built on. Click on the thumbnail to see live image from the webcam.
