Description

The Ronde Venen is ideal for exploring by bicycle. From the many dykes you can enjoy panoramic views over a wetland landscape. You will also pass through picturesque historic towns.

Vinkeveense Plassen
In the Ronde Venen you see straight plots where the cows graze peacefully and the farms look picturesque. The windmills are also not missing: just past Wilnis you pass the Veenmolen, a flour mill from 1823. Demmerik neighborhood was probably founded in the eleventh century by descendants of Danish Vikings. A little later you enter Vinkeveen. After enjoying the view over the Vinkeveense Plassen, you will pass the thirteenth-century Loenersloot Castle.

fighting zone
From the towpath along the Vecht you can see how man has created his own paradise on earth. On the natural banks of the river are many country estates, farms and fruit orchards. Beautiful monuments can also be seen in the village of Loenen aan de Vecht. Just like in the picturesque Nieuwersluis, a former fortress village.

Millionaire Mile
From Vinkeveen you drive into the Baambrugse Zuwe. This is a special neighborhood for several reasons. It consists of only one road, the eponymous Baambrugse Zuwe. And then the road is also about one and a half meters below NAP. This street is a former reclamation axis that runs right through the Vinkeveense Plassen. Thanks to the marinas and villas, this road is nicknamed the Millionaire Mile.
