Description

You start your route at Flora Batava. You head south to Kockengen. Then you cycle further and you pass Kamereyck. Here you can enjoy a cup of coffee or tea with a snack. If you continue with the route, you will cycle to the Nieuwkoopse Plassen. The Nieuwkoopse Plassen is a nature reserve with a typical Dutch landscape of approximately 1400 hectares. You will then continue cycling along the water to the Vinkeveense Plassen. You cycle over the water in the direction of Braambrugge. Then you go to Loenersloot Castle. Loenersloot Castle is a castle and former knightly court town on the river Angstel. It is not known when exactly this castle was built. But in 1258 the castle was first mentioned in a document. Then you go through the village of Loenen aan de Vecht back to Nieuwersluis. Here you can take a look at Fort Nieuwersluis. Fort Nieuwersluis is an old fort that was dug in 1446. It was a connection between De Vecht and the Angstel, an important improvement for inland shipping between Amsterdam, Utrecht and Muiden. Due to the difference in water level at the two rivers, a lock was necessary. This is also where the name Nieuwersluis comes from. You continue with the route and you are back at Flora Batava. We hope you enjoyed your bike ride.
