Water everywhere you look, reed beds, swamp forests and a soothing silence. Get on your bike and go on a journey of discovery in the beautiful wetland nature reserve De Weerribben!

National Park
During this cycling tour you will discover National Park Weerribben-Wieden. The landscape here looks untouched, but nothing could be further from the truth. The Weerribben sub-area was created by peat extraction from the Middle Ages until shortly after the Second World War. The cut peat was left to dry on narrow strips of land intended for this purpose. These strips were called'ribs\\\' and the larger open waters were called weeding. Enjoy the peace and quiet during the bike ride - you only hear birdsong.

black tern
Especially in spring the many birds can make themselves heard, a joy! You see purple herons, the black tern and the reed warbler. Reeds and cattails often grow on the edges of the water of the Weerribben. Before and after your walk you can visit Restaurant Ant Waeter. As the name of the restaurant suggests, you can enjoy a delicious meal or drink here along the water. How about homemade apple pie?
