Elburg is a beautiful fortified town a stone's throw from the Randmeren between Flevoland and Gelderland. In Elburg you can enjoy historic sights and ancient streets that betray the rich history of this old Hanseatic city. The port of Elburg is the starting point of this route. From here you can walk into the center of the town. The fortified town still has a rectangular street plan that dates back to the Middle Ages. In the center you pass one historic building after the other. The city is surrounded by beautiful ramparts and parts of the city wall. Also nice is the National Historic Organ Museum, located in a medieval city castle. Then you walk a bit outside to explore the canal that surrounds Elburg. This way you can clearly see that it is a fortified city!

Rederij Randmeer in Elburg is the right place for you if you want to take a boat trip on the Veluwemeer or the IJsselmeer. In the months of July and August, boat trips are made every day from the fishing port in Elburg from 12:00. A round trip takes 50 minutes. In the other months it is best to inform yourself in advance when there are tours, so that you are not on the quay for nothing. A boat trip is the ideal break from a cycling trip. Step onto the boat and sit with your feet up to rest for a while. Along the way you enjoy the ever-changing environment and the soothing water around you. Drink a cup of coffee and recharge yourself for the second part of your bike ride. On fixed dates, a saloon boat departs from Elburg to Urk via various peripheral lakes and the IJsselmeer. Does such a day trip sound like something to you? Check the website of Rederij Randmeer for more information. If you come via route.nl, there is a nice gift worth EUR 14.95 waiting for you.

Casa Piccola is a household name in Elburg and the surrounding area. Not infrequently there is a long line of people in front of the small ice cream parlor, which has been located in the fortress of Elburg for more than 40 years. They regularly appear in the media in the TOP10 lists of the best ice cream parlors in the Netherlands. Ice cream is made from natural ingredients of the best quality. Milk from Elburg cows, fruit from local growers and spices from the historic herb garden. All day long there are pans on the stove and it smells wonderfully of vanilla, nuts or herbs. No flavor pastes or other prefab aids are used in this ice cream parlor, which makes them unique. Ingredients such as mascarpone and limoncello are simply made in our own kitchen, so that freshness and quality are always guaranteed. A visit to this ice cream parlor should not be missed if you are cycling or walking through Elburg. You will find them in the fortress right next to the Vischpoort or at the harbor in the historic tea house next to Restaurant De Herberg. Check the website for current opening times.
