Just outside Utrecht you can drive straight into the beautiful polder landscape. An ideal environment for a nice day of cycling along flowery meadows, rivers and historic sights. You will also pass De Haar Castle.

In this region you can see the cope landscape with its characteristic narrow plots: an allotment pattern whose origins date back to the thirteenth century. The hamlet of Teckop through which you drive was founded in the reclamation period. Along the river Meije you can see beautiful old farms on the dike. From a distance you can also see the almost sixty meter high water tower from 1932, an iconic national monument that is also known locally as Pietje Potlood.

Have a nice rest at Geertjes Hoeve
Near Harmelen you cycle through orchards and along the fairytale Vijverbos. At Geertjes Hoeve you can regain your strength on the cozy terrace of the farm restaurant. This cozy restaurant is located in Haarzuilens, a village just outside Utrecht. Enjoy a tasty snack and a drink here and recharge your batteries. Then take a look at the cheese dairy and the farm shop of Geertjes Hoeve and stock up on something delicious to take home. Then you can think back to your trip for a long time and reminisce.

Castle the hair
Enough time for a trip? Then visit De Haar Castle, the largest castle in the Netherlands. The castle originally dates from the fourteenth century, the current castle was rebuilt in 1892 in neo-Gothic style. Would you also like to take a walk in the area of Geertjes Hoeve? Then walk route 537826.
