Arrive early, because it's worth it. Rotterdam is one of the most interesting cities in Europe and offers exciting places to eat and shop in addition to its architecture and harbour. Get to know the harbour from a different perspective on a harbour cruise.
After a short time in the saddle, the first highlight of the trip awaits you - the windmills of Kinderdijk. Marvel at the 19 preserved windmills from the 18th century, which are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. After the visit, cycle to Dordrecht, Holland's oldest city with its 1000 monuments and historic harbour area. In the afternoon, the tour continues to the fortified city of Willemstad.
Today you leave the mainland and cycle to the island of Goeree-Overflakkee. This paradise for nature lovers offers extensive polders and nature reserves as well as small villages with Dutch flair. From here, the cycle route continues to the island of Schouwen-Duiveland, which is known for its beautiful beaches. In your destination today, Zierikzee, you can end the day with a short stroll through the many small boutiques or along the beach promenade.
Am Morgen überqueren Sie zunächst die 5 km lange Zeeland-Brücke, die von Zierikzee nach Noord-Beveland führt. Diese Insel liegt zwischen der Oosterschelde und dem Veerse Meer. Besuchen Sie auf der Halbinsel Walcheren das Fort Rammekens. Das Fort aus dem 16. Jahrhundert gilt als das älteste Seefort Westeuropas. Genießen Sie während eines Rundgangs den herrlichen Ausblick auf die Westerschelde. In der Hafenstadt Vlissingen können Sie sich bei einem Spaziergang über die längste Promenade der Niederlande entspannen. Am Ende des Tages erreichen Sie Middelburg mit seinen verwinkelten Gassen und vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten.
Today's cycle stage takes you northwards across the Walcheren peninsula. Forests alternate with old villages and small towns. You can enjoy nature in the Kop van Schouwen nature reserve, where golden yellow beaches invite you to take a refreshing dip every now and then. The Delta Works are a highlight of this stage. The largest storm surge barrier in the world is made up of a total of 13 structures and is an impressive construction of dams, dykes and locks. In your overnight stay in Ouddorp today, you have the opportunity to end the day on the beach.
Pedal hard in the morning and you will quickly reach the island of Vorne-Putten from the island of Goeree-Overflakkee via the Harlingvlietdam. The dam is the sixth structure of the Delta Works.
