Cycling along the canal

The train station in Coevorden is the starting point of this route. Close by you will also find the H Design Hotels Kasteel Coevorden. Explore the historic center of this fortified city and see all the special sights from earlier times. From the historic center of the city, cross the city canal and then follow the Stieltjes Canal out of the city. This canal was built between 1880 and 1884 to promote shipping. The canal runs all the way to the Verlengde Hoogeveensche Vaart in New Amsterdam. On the way to New Amsterdam you make a detour through the beautiful polder landscape, where you can enjoy the tranquility of nature to the fullest.

Taking a break in New Amsterdam
When you have arrived in Nieuw-Amsterdam you can take a break at Eetcafe Foodmaster De Viersprong. Time for a nice lunch and something to drink, so that you can continue cycling with fresh energy. You cycle past the station of Nieuw-Amsterdam out of the city, in the direction of Emmen.

The former esdorp Emmen
Before you enter Emmen, you will pass the Grote Rietplas, an artificial recreational lake with nice beaches around it. Then you will get to know the cozy Emmen. This city is sometimes called the'open, green city\\\' because of the special structure of the city. Emmen was originally an esdorp on the Hondsrug sand ridge. The city is surrounded by peat bogs.
