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 windmills, a brick factory and various castles. The tour ends in the historic city center of Wijk bij Duurstede, where you can wander around, 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, in the direction of Culemborg, there you take the ferry back over the Lek, to return to the Kromme Rijnstreek. Cothen is a nice resting point, including at the cheese farm. In the village you will find the grain mill Oog in't Zeil. If the blades turn, you are welcome for a visit. There are also two catering establishments in the village, both with terraces. In 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 will pass castles, including the Sandenburg. The surrounding estates are often accessible for a walk. This is how we pass the Darthuizen estate during this cycle route. The red-brick country house is centrally located in the landscape park and slightly elevated, so that there is a view over the forest-lined meadows around. These originally belonged to a farm complex established on site. The large-scale, but private garden and park in landscape style, was designed after a design by LA Springer from 1917. To the left of the house is a small walking forest; to the right behind the house a whimsical pond and to the right the remnants of an originally much larger orchard. About 3 kilometers before the end point you will pass a farmer's golf address. The terminus is the city center of Wijk bij Duurstede. This cycle route is offered to you by VVV Wijk bij Duurstede.
