Cycling along the Utrechtse Vecht and through Kockengen

  • The Netherlands
  • Utrecht
  • De Ronde Venen
  • 48.21 km (Approximately 02:50 u)
  • Cycling route 115998
Along the Vecht you cycle past rippling water, grassy meadows and old farms. You pass two nineteenth-century polder mills: the Garstenmolen and Hoekermolen. You will also pass De Nes: a meander in the Vecht the size of a small lake. There was once an island on which a country estate was located from 1687 to 1827. In the course of the twentieth century, the island disappeared due to sand extraction. Just before Vreeland you pass the Ruitermolen, a flour mill from 1910. Then you cycle along the part of the Vecht that is rich in country estates. In Breukelen you cross the river and drive to Kockengen for a pit stop at Abrona Kunst & Koffie. You will cycle through the peat landscape to two picturesque villages: Loenersloot and Baambrugge.
