Description

Wijk bij Duurstede is a beautiful old town at the intersection of the Nederrijn and the Amsterdam-Rhine Canal. In the surrounding polders you can enjoy a wide river landscape.

Amerongen Castle
At De Veldpoort Food and Drink you can have a nice lunch on the cozy terrace before you get on your bike. You are the first to drive through the Kromme Rijnstreek. From the saddle you have a beautiful view over the elongated plots of grassland and the many ditches. From a distance you can see the wooded Utrechtse Heuvelrug coming closer. You drive a bit through Leersum, the next stop is the beautiful Amerongen Castle.

Duurstede castle
More castles used to be built along the Lek. Only the moat of Bergestein Castle is still partly visible in the landscape. Natewisch Castle dates from the thirteenth century. A large part of the castle was demolished at the end of the nineteenth century. Only the tower is still there, a proud reminder of times gone by. Don't worry, as last you pass Castle Duurstede and drive through the picturesque heart of Wijk bij Duurstede.
