The fifth part of the Zuiderzee route leads you along the banks of the Veluwerandmeren. You will cross Gelderland, Utrecht and you will eventually end up in Noord-Holland. Along the way, check out historic sites that have everything to do with water.

On to the fishing village of Spakenburg
The Beach hotel Monopole in the old Hanseatic city of Harderwijk forms the starting point of this stage. From here you cycle along the Veluwerandmeren, the Wolderwijd, the Nuldernauw and the Nijkerkernauw, to Spakenburg. This former fishing village was located on the Zuiderzee before the construction of the Afsluitdijk. You can still find all kinds of monumental buildings and places here, such as the old fish auction and the fish smokehouse. Part of Spakenburg is a protected village, so there is plenty to see here. On the way to Spakenburg you can also take a look at the Putter steam pumping station and the Arkemheen steam pumping station. These steam pumping stations have kept the surrounding polders dry for a long time. The pumping stations are still put into operation at extreme water levels.

Hotel Restaurant Het Rechthuis
Via Huizen you cycle to the end point in Muiderberg. There you can settle down at Hotel Restaurant Het Rechthuis to chat with a snack and a drink. Overnight stays are of course also an option.

Fortified town of Naarden
On the last part of this route you will pass Naarden. This historic fortified town is known for its special star shape with double walls, gatehouses and bastions that date from the 17th century. Take a look in Naarden to get acquainted with this military past of the city and then immediately enjoy all the fun.
