  • Cycling route 524546

From the picturesque Abcoude you can drive straight into the former peat area. Here you will find characteristic views, historic old places and a striking amount of silence. That is enjoyment per linear bicycle meter.

Along the Gein
Immediately after getting on the plane you drive along the meandering Gein through a landscape of green meadows with grazing cows, dikes lined with pollard willows and elongated plots with old farms. You pass the Oostzijdse Molen, dating from 1874, one of Mondrian's beloved paintings. You can also see the old Liniedijk that belongs to the nearby Fort at Nigtevecht. You make a small trip to North Holland when you cross the beautiful monumental fortified town of Weesp.

Picturesque Vechtstreek
Via the course of the Utrechtse Vecht you drive in the direction of Vreeland. You can enjoy reed collars and tranquility here. And of course the rippling water, the old mills and the many monumental farms and mansions. Also on the other side of the Amsterdam-Rhine Canal you drive through some historic village centres. You can see the thirteenth-century Loenersloot Castle here. At Boutique Hotel Restaurant De Witte Dame in Abcoude you are welcome for a drink, meal and comfortable overnight stay.

Monumental Abcoude
The route takes you through Weesp, Nederhorst Den Berg, Vreeland, Loenersloot, Baambrugge and Abcoude. All places that are rich in monumental buildings. And that within a relatively small area. So be careful when cycling that you do not drive into the water, while you are again admiring a beautiful building. Like in Abcoude. You will see plenty of monuments here, such as the fifteenth-century Gothic village church. The Wilhelmina Bridge over the Gein is also beautiful. This quail (footbridge) dates from 1908. Do you want to see more of this beautiful area? Then also drive. Then also take route 524544. Or take a walk through Abcoude and the surrounding area with route 524547.
