Green Heart route towards the Meije

  • The Netherlands
  • South Holland
  • Alphen aan den Rijn
  • 48.40 km (Approximately 02:50 u)
  • Cycling route 357350
This route was created with the help of Dennis Appels (Animal Care Avifauna).

The nice thing about this route is that it meanders along with the river through a typical Dutch landscape. The view is different at every bend. There are also two nice cafes on the route where you can relax and have something to eat or drink. Along the Hollandse Kade, at the Nieuwkoopse Plassen, there are various bird viewing points; huts, benches and signs with descriptions. The ultimate bird to spot here is the bittern, but you will also find grebes, tufted ducks, gadwalls and other waterfowl. This is also the area of the otter.
