This cycle route around Wijchen takes you along the Maas and the Waal. You will find plenty of peace and space in the polders. You will also pass through some old villages and the Hatertse and Overasseltse Vennen nature reserve.
You first cycle through Bergharen, a nice village where you can see the Sint-Anna Church from 1894. You will soon pass through Hernen. Thanks to the old farms and the beautiful castle, you can still experience the atmosphere of a bygone era around the St. Judocus Church from 1893. Further on you have a nice view from the Maasdijk of Ravenstein, the Maas and the Loonse Waard. You pass the Maasmolen, a flour mill from 1741. The mill served as a replacement for an older mill that was washed away during a dike breach.
