Gorinchem, Asperen, Leerdam

Although Gorinchem was possibly already inhabited around the year 1000, the city was mentioned for the first time in a document from 1224. The city was strategically located and was often a battleground. Therefore, it was important to be on the lookout and that worked out well with the city wall from the fifteenth century. No fewer than 23 towers stood on it! At the end of the sixteenth century, the wall was so weakened that a new rampart was needed. This wall, which doubled the size of the city, is still almost completely intact. However, only the Dalempoort remains of the four city gates.

The fortress of Asperen was part of the Dutch Waterline. Nowadays, it can be visited and cultural events are held there.

Leerdam is of course known for its glass art. But here too, history can be found in well-preserved historic buildings, such as the church or the restored city walls. On the spot where Leerdam Castle used to stand (completely destroyed by the Spaniards in 1574), you will now find the Hofje van mevrouw Van Aerden. This used to be a court for women and is now a museum. You will also encounter the famous glass art several times on the cycle route.
