Cycle route UNESCO World Heritage
Amsterdam, Utrecht, Harlingen
A cycle route along all the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of the Netherlands! Lubricate your bicycle chain and make sure you wear good cycling shorts, because this route of over 800 kilometres will not leave you in cold cycling clothes. And that's not only because of the distance but especially because of the special dismounting moments that are unique in the world. Together they tell the story of our country and you can discover this special story by bike.
Taste the salt on your lips at the Wadden Sea, count the windmills at Kinderdijk, blow off steam at the Woudagemaal, cycle along the Amsterdam Canal District, pay a visit to Gerrit Rietveld, plough through the polders in the Beemster, lie in front of Pampus at the Dutch Water Defence Lines, experience the lights at the Van Nelle Factory, cycle back in time on the former island of Schokland, find out whether your ancestors lived in the Colonies of Weldadigheid and discover the traces of the Romans along the Lower Germanic Limes.
Make the cycle route a little longer in your mind by adding Willemstad, also a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Kingdom of the Netherlands, and imagine yourself on the Caribbean island of Curaçao.
The Noordhollands Duinreservaat is a nature reserve managed by drinking water company PWN and stretches from Wijk aan Zee to Schoorl. In this area with dunes, woods, lakes and cultural-historical aspects, an access card (dune card) is compulsory from the age of 18. Cycling is allowed on the paved paths, but not on the unpaved paths until half past 10 in the morning. This is indicated by signs and on the PWN walking and cycling map. Prepare for your visit via the PWN website.
