Description

This cycling route winds through the Bommelerwaard, a region that is embraced by the Maas and Waal. You pass through picturesque towns such as the fortified town of Zaltbommel and Ammerzoden.

Fortified town of Zaltbommel
At the Maas in Ammerzoden you have a beautiful view over the Maas and your route starts. A little further on you will pass the well-preserved Ammersoyen Castle. In Bruchem you can see Landgoed Groenhoven, which has a beautiful two-hundred-year-old villa. Then you take a look at the monumental city center of Zaltbommel.

Fort Sint Andries
It is quiet cycling on the dikes between Maas and Waal. For example, you drive along the Kil van Hurwenen, a floodplain rich in birds. Further on, you will pass the remains of the largest military structure built by the Spaniards in 1599: Fort Sint Andries. In the interior you mainly drive along flower-rich grasslands. Between Rossum and Kerkdriel you look out over the quay that is part of the classic Maasheggen landscape with its old oaks and hawthorns.

Ammersoyen Castle
On the edge of Ammerzoden you will pass Ammersoyen Castle, one of the best preserved authentic medieval castles in the Netherlands. With its striking corner towers and wide moat, it is truly a sight to behold. The castle still consists of one whole, which is quite exceptional since most castles have been added over the centuries. The moated castle stands in an old Meuse bed that must have been cut off from the river before 1354. You can still clearly see the old Maasarm in the landscape. Would you like to discover more of the river landscape near Zaltbommel? Then also walk the routes 179956 and 179957.
