Arrival in Utrecht
You leisurely cycle along the river Vecht to Amsterdam. The character of the area is mainly shaped by the country estates and tea pavilions that Amsterdam merchants had built in the 17th and 18th centuries. Enjoy the evening in the vibrant city, there is a lot to discover!
After you have left the historical and interesting city centre of Amsterfam, you cycle through Zuid-Kennemerland, a colourful and natural region. Zandvoort, also called the „Pearl on the Sea“, welcomes you with a kilometre long white sandy beach and is surrounded by two beautiful dune areas with rich flora and fauna.
This stage takes you through dunes and the flower bulb area. In spring, a visit to the Keukenhof, the mecca for flower lovers, is a must. Experience traditional and modern garden architecture on 32 hectares of parkland. Numerous seaside resorts await you along the coast, from small, cosy family beaches to large, lively seaside resorts. The city of The Hague welcomes you with numerous monuments and is the centre of Dutch politics. The Noordeinde Palace is the ‚workplace‘ of the King.
On the way to Rotterdam is Delft, city of history, culture and relaxation, but also city of the painter Vermeer, the Orangemen, the United East India Company and ceramics. Everyone agrees that Delft is one of the most beautiful cities in the Netherlands. Buildings with magnificent gables, tree-lined canals with picturesque bridges and inviting terraces characterise the lively historic centre. Rotterdam is a city with many faces, it is the architectural city of Holland, where the famous skyline is constantly changing. Let yourself drift and explore the city on your own.
In lively Rotterdam you can still visit the historic harbour before you continue with your route. You have the option to take the catamaran speedboat directly to Ridderkerk, from where you cycle via Kinderdijk (world-famous windmills) to Gouda, the well-known ‚Cheese Town‘ of the Netherlands. There is a lot to discover in this beautiful historical city full of hip, atmposhperic places and passionate people. From the market square with its iconic town hall to the glorious stained glass windows of the Sint Jan church and from street food to chic retaurants, there is something for everyone. A shorter alternative route is to cycle directly from Kinderdijk to Gouda
After riding through the special cultural-historic scenery with old rivers, wide polders, lakes and swampy moor areas, you reach Utrecht. It owes much of its lively character to the fantastic canals, which are truly unique thanks to their waterfront footpaths
