Today’s stage takes you along the North Sea coast. Wonderful beach promenades will once again tempt you to take a dip in the cool water.

In the Vermeer Centre, you can admire works by the painter Johannes Vermeer. The numerous cafés and restaurants will tempt you to linger. The cycling stage ends in the trendy harbour metropolis of Rotterdam, a paradise for shopping fans.
After breakfast, you will still have time for a short stroll through Rotterdam. You will be captivated by the modern architecture. Once on your bike, you will quickly reach the windmills of Kinderdijk. The 19 impressive buildings are among the most popular postcard motifs in the Netherlands. The famous windmills were built as early as 1740 and were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. The rest of the tour takes you through the water-rich and picturesque countryside to Gouda.
The medieval town Gouda is not only famous for its cheese, but also for its syrup waffles. You can convince yourself of their quality at breakfast! Today's stage takes you into the green heart of the Netherlands. You will pass through extensive natural landscapes, picturesque villages and vast polders. In the historic city centre of Utrecht, you can end the cycling stage with a refreshing beer. Numerous restaurants and bars invite you to stay a while.
Picturesque parks, canals, historic buildings and many interesting museums await you in Utrecht. Following the course of the Utrechtse Vecht, your cycle tour continues. The region surrounding this idyllic river offers a lot of culture and history. The beautiful landscape is complemented by a rich gastronomic culture. At the end of the day, you will once again reach the starting point of your cycle tour, the Dutch capital Amsterdam. You will certainly not be bored in the evening!
There is still time for all the things you didn't manage to do at the beginning of your tour. Whether it's a canal cruise or a relaxing stroll, you can always find some peace and quiet in the capital. We are happy to book an extension stay if you want more time to explore.
