Description

Let yourself be taken on a journey of discovery along the defenses of one of the most beautifully preserved defense lines in the Netherlands: the New Dutch Waterline. The start and end point of this cycling tour is Culemborg, a city where history speaks from every paving stone. You cycle over the dike along the Lek to the west, with a view of the floodplains, past Werk aan het Spoel. Variation tip: cross the river here with the Liniepont, which sails between Werk aan de Groeneweg, Werk aan het Spoel and Fort Everdingen. The route leads you further through peaceful nature towards the so-called tower fortress: Fort Asperen. The last kilometers back to Culemborg take you straight through the'fruit garden of the Netherlands\\\', past many fruit orchards that are a feast for the eyes in blossom time, a feast for the tongue at harvest time. Not to be missed is the Heerlijkheid Marienwaerdt estate, with the famous Appeldijk and delicious coffee and cake at De Stapelbakker. Variation tip: Deviate from the route for GeoFort, the exciting monumental fortress island, where everything is dominated by maps and navigation.
