Minnewater (Lake of Love)
Nature

A romantic hotspot par excellence! Once people believed that water nymphs (“minnen” in Dutch) lived here, and thus the lake acquired its name. Add to that a tragic love story, mysterious trees and an abundance of greenery and you get a place overflowing with romance. How about an Instagram post? The finest photos can be taken from the Lake of Love bridge, or by the Lockhouse. A hit even without filters.
