The village of Werkhoven with Odijk and Bunnik belongs to the municipality of Bunnik. This municipality is also known as the so-called backyard of the historical city of Utrecht. It not only combines two mayor tourist areas (‘Utrechtse Heuvelrug’ and ‘Krommerijnstreek’), but also is one of the 26 burroughs which belong to the largest archeological monuments of the Netherlands: the Roman Limes (http://www.romeinselimes.nl/nl). History and nature are abundantly present in this area.
Furthermore, there are plenty of nice restaurants in the surroundings. Try out our local restaurant ‘t Wapen van Werkhoven, open weekend days only. The nearest supermarket is in Odijk (3 km).
