In the Westland you can enjoy a wonderful tour along beautiful old towns. You will discover special nature reserves and be amazed by the Nieuwe Waterweg, with all those enormous ships!

Staelduinse Bos
First a cup of coffee at the Vlietzicht starting point and then: off you go! You cycle via the Delftsche Schie to the Abtswoudse forest, which you drive straight through. In Schipluiden you will pass the Tram Station Museum. In this nice town you will see some beautiful monumental buildings on the quay. A little later you cycle through the Staelduinse Bos, a nature reserve with stately avenues and old deciduous trees that was designed as an estate in the nineteenth century.

New Waterway
The Nieuwe Waterweg was constructed in 1872. You can get a breath of fresh air along the banks while looking at the large ocean ships. You will see, among other things, the Maeslantkering, which was put into use in 1997, one of the last parts of the Delta Works. On the other side are the Oranjeplassen, an unspoilt and bird-rich nature reserve. Via the beautiful Maassluis you drive through the Broekpolder, a nature reserve consisting of forests, open spaces and water features.
