Description

In the surroundings of Maarssen you can make beautiful cycling trips. This route takes you along the Maarsseveense Plassen and the meandering Vecht where you will see many stately country houses.

Loosdrechtse Plassen
At the Loosdrechtse Plassen you drive through a picturesque landscape where different waters are separated from each other by dikes and islands. You have beautiful views here, so stop and enjoy the surroundings. In Oud-Loosdrecht you can still see many monumental farms and houses from the eighteenth and nineteenth century on the dike. A little later you drive past Fort Spion, the fortification from 1847 that was part of the New Dutch Waterline.

Sypesteyn Castle
Plan enough time for this route, because you will also pass Sypesteyn Castle, a beautiful moated castle that was rebuilt at the beginning of the twentieth century on the foundations of its predecessor. A museum has been set up in the castle where you can learn everything about the special history of Sypesteyn.
