Neighborhood at Duurstede
This route starts at the parking lot on the edge of Rijswijk, where you can park your car before getting on your bike. You cycle along the water to Wijk bij Duurstede, which is located at the junction of the Nederrijn and the Lek. The city has a long history: from a flourishing trading town to a bishop's town and from a fortress town to a commuter town. Wijk bij Duurstede is a pleasant city with beautiful outdoor areas.
Mill De Hoop
At the start of the route you will cycle past the wind corn mill De Hoop. This mill was built in the first half of the 18th century to replace an old mill on the floodplains of the Lek. Over the centuries, the mill was restored several times. The mill was last restored in 2003 and today the mill is still run on a voluntary basis.
On the route you can take a look at no fewer than three castles. The first castle you will encounter on the way is Hindersteijn Castle, which was built in the year 1300. You will then pass Sterkenburg Castle, which was built here around 1196. You can walk freely through the beautiful garden. The last castle you pass is Beverweerd Castle, a 13th-century castle on an island along the Kromme Rijn.
