You cycle along the river Vecht which leads you through villages like Maarssen, Breukelen, Loenen, Vreeland and Nigtevegt. In Oud-Zuilen you should visit the medieval palace. At the Loosdrechtse Lakes you can rest and relax. Your hotel is located in the historic town of Weesp.
You follow the river Gein which takes you through the rural area in the South of Amsterdam until you reach the village of Abcoude. You pass some forts of the former fortress of Amsterdam. Along the river Kromme Mijdrecht you reach the sea area of Nieuwkoop. You follow the stream Meije until you reach your hotel at Lake Zuideinderplas.
You stay for another night in Nieuwkoop. It’s up to you if you go on a loop tour or if you relax at the Lake.
Along Lake Reeuwijkse you continue to Gouda with its monuments, canals and squares where the famous cheese is sold. You have enough time because your stage is really short today. If you still want to continue with cycling we recommend going to Schoonhoven.
Loop tour to Schoonhoven and Kinderdijk. In 1750 there were built 19 mills which still work today. They are part of the UNESCO world cultural heritage.
On your last cycle day you cross the banks along the Dutch Ijssel to Oudewater. Via Worden and palace Haarzuilens you come back to Utrecht again. Your tour is completed.
