Lovely cycle route in Utrecht
IJsselstein, Vianen, Culemborg
If you love a relaxing cycle route, then this one is an excellent choice! Let yourself be carried along the beautiful Lek, an imposing river with vast floodplains that form a unique area at high tide. Several interesting stops await you along the way, making this tour not only good for the legs, but also for the curious mind.
During your cycling route, enjoy the historical splendour of the area, where you will pass some imposing forts, a stately castle and an atmospheric windmill. Take Heemstede Castle, for example, which had its origins in 1645. Unfortunately, the castle fell prey to neglect and burned down in 1987. Fortunately, parts of the valuable interior were saved and have now been given a place of honour in the rebuilt castle, bringing history to life in a special way.
The cycle route takes you through the province of Utrecht, known for its diversity and beauty. It is a region that not only hosts historical gems, but also offers culinary delights. Discover local delicacies and enjoy the hospitality this province has to offer. And as a bonus, you'll also pick up a bit of Gelderland along the way, which only adds to the variety of your trip.
For those wishing to shorten the route, the option of crossing the Lek by ferry at junction 52 or 42 offers a convenient option.
