Description

This cycling route brings together the best of both worlds: the lively centers of Vlaardingen and Delft and the tranquility of Midden-Delfland. The route starts at TOP Vlaardingen (where you can easily park your car) and takes you back to Vlaardingen via Delft, Den Hoorn, Schipluiden, Maasland and Maassluis. During your bike ride you will pass many sights. For example, you cycle through the historic center in Delft, you come across the beautiful picturesque'Op Hodenpijl\\\' in Schipluiden and you can get off in Vlaardingen for a trip with the whisper boat (possible from April to October). ). Vlaardingen is a versatile city. It is the city where the oldest excavations in Western Europe have been done, the city that was declared the Greenest City of the Netherlands in 2009 and even became the Greenest City of Europe in 2010! Today, Vlaardingen has a bustling center with many cozy shops, where you can find the large retail chains and unique boutiques. But the signs of earlier times are still clearly visible. The many monumental buildings recall the city's unique and rich fishing past. From the TOP in Vlaardingen you cycle in the direction of Delft, a pleasant historic city. Opposite the City Hall is the Nieuwe Kerk (1381). This church, where you can visit the mausoleum of William of Orange and where the members of the royal family are buried, has the second highest church tower in the Netherlands. You then go to the Markt where you see the beautiful old town hall that was built in 1620. Then you cycle into the oasis of peace of Midden-Delfland. Midden-Delfland is an ideal cycling area with long, often separate cycle paths. Along the way you will come across a large number of cozy rest stops to catch your breath and, for example, have a bite to eat or enjoy the old Dutch peat meadow landscape. As usual in the province of South Holland, you will also find a lot of windmills in this region. During this cycling route you will pass the windmills; Mercury (hull/remainder), Drie Lilies, Dijkmolen and Aeolus. This mill of Vlaardingen is a characteristic building and can be found in the center, located on the Kortedijk. A mill must turn. That sounds obvious, but it isn't. Certainly not if the mill is over 200 years old. Craftsmanship and maintenance keep the Aeolus mill on the Kortedijk. This cycling route is offered to you by the South Holland Tourist Board.
