Description

The best agricultural land in the Netherlands is located in the Betuwe. The favorable location in combination with the healthy soil conditions produces the tastiest apples, pears and cherries. The Betuweroute may therefore also be called'the fruit garden\\\' of the Netherlands. The Betuwe is at its most beautiful in spring when the white-pink blossom adorns the trees and in summer the fruit hangs abundantly from the branches. The cycling tour crosses historic Huissen with its many old traditions. In the first place, the own dialect has been preserved because Huissen is pronounced as Huusse. In addition, the Huissense Guild is still alive and there is an annual procession and fair with the traditional'Vleiskeure\\\'. The route starts at the quietly located Linge Hotel Elst in Elst with free parking for the car. There is also a lockable bicycle shed with charging point and the grand-café restaurant is immediately a good charging point for cyclists. The non-smoking hotel is also a good base for visiting various museums or the zoo. Linge Hotel Elst has an excellent location for trips along the rivers Linge, Waal or Rhine. Route 137307 also starts and ends at this hotel, so you can make two beautiful trips with an overnight stay. In the spring of 1944, Operation Market Garden came to a complete standstill in this area.
