Description

The Bommelerwaard has a rich and exciting history, which goes back thousands of years in time and has left many traces. Let this route take you through this versatile region and learn everything about the fascinating history of the Bommelerwaard. The fight against water is a recurring element in the cycle route. For example, you pass the Afgedamde Maas tot Well and on the Maasdijk you will find the De Baanbreker pumping station, which provides drainage in Oost-Bommelerwaard. The route also leads you past some beautiful castles, such as Loevestein Castle and Ammersoyen Castle. Visit Loevestein Castle and learn all about this beautiful 17th-century fortress. Ammersoyen Castle, with its impressive corner towers, the robust castle wall and the wide moat, is one of the best-preserved medieval moated castles in our country. The last part of the route you cycle in the direction of Gorinchem, where the route passes Fort Vuren and the Hugo de Grootpoortje. From Gorinchem you take the ferry or water taxi back to Slot Loevestein.
