Description

The Kromme Rijnstreek is part of the Rivierenland National Landscape. This varied route takes you over dikes, along floodplains, agricultural landscape and along the forests of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug. You cycle past mills, a brick factory and various castles. The tour ends in the historic city center of Wijk bij Duurstede, where you can wander around wonderfully, and perhaps end the day with a nice dinner in one of the many restaurants! You can determine the length of the route yourself, 30 or 50 kilometers. With the ferry you cross to the Betuwe, direction Culemborg, there you take the ferry back over the Lek, to return to the Kromme Rijnstreek. Cothen is a nice resting place, including at the cheese farm. In the village you will find the grain mill Oog in't Zeil. If the blades are turning, you are welcome for a visit. There are also two catering companies in the village, both with terraces. During the cherry season it is delicious to eat cherries in Cothen. In the spring you can see plenty of blossom in this area! In the last part of the route you pass castles, including the Sandenburg. The surrounding estates are often accessible for a walk. During this cycling route we pass the Darthuizen estate. The red brick country house is centrally located in the landscape park and slightly elevated, so that there is a view over the surrounding forest-lined meadows. These originally belonged to a farm complex established on site. The large-scale, but private garden and park layout in a landscape style, was carried out after a design by LA Springer from 1917. On the left side of the house is a small walking forest; to the right behind the house a whimsically shaped pond and to the right the remains of an originally much larger orchard. About 3 kilometers before the end point you will pass a farmer's golf address. The end point is the city center of Wijk bij Duurstede. This cycling route is offered to you by VVV Wijk bij Duurstede.
