Dordrecht – Rotterdam – Delft

Wednesday 20 miles  // 35 km

On this day we cover the necessary miles on your bicycle and by boat. We begin by sailing over the Noord and Nieuwe Maas rivers to the largest port in the world, Rotterdam. One doesn’t just sail past this city, also called “Manhattan on the Maas”. The impressive harbour, Euromast and the modern architecture invite you to pay a visit. From Rotterdam we move on to Delft. Delft is a beautiful contrast compared to Rotterdam. The heart of the old town with the “Nieuwe Kerk” (New Church) in the centre and its small canals and beautifully decorated facades is a moving sight to the visitor. All the members of the Royal Family lie buried in the Nieuwe Kerk, together with the father of the fatherland, William of Orange. The night is spent in Delft.

 

Delft – The Hague – Leiden    

Thursday 25 miles  // 40 km

 

Before we leave Delft, we pay a visit to a studio where earthenware is hand painted with the famous “Delfts blauw” (Delft’s blue). Now on the cycle we follow our way to the seat of government capital, The Hague. The houses around the hunting castle “de graven van Holland” (The Earls of Holland) grew into a town, and the castle gave it its name, ‘s-Gravenhage. The area is exceptionally cycle-friendly and that makes a visit by bicycle something special. You cycle along the many cycle paths, straight through the city whilst left and right you can admire the government buildings, museums and stately facades of the mansions. The town ends abruptly on the beach of Scheveningen with its charming boulevard and fishing port. The Hague has many attractions such as “Panorama Mesdag”, a painting of enormous measurements, 14 meters high and a circumference of 120 meters. At the end of the day you cycle back to the the university town of Leiden.

 

Leiden – Haarlem

Friday– 22 or 28 miles  // 36 or 46 km

Today we cycle through dunes, polders and bulb fields to Haarlem. The “keukenhof” is in bloom until the end of May. We pay a visit to this flower show. Cycling through the dunes you smell the sea. For some of us, there is an irresistible urge to look out over this vast expanse of water with the murmur of the waves breaking on the shore. We give in to this. Just before Haarlem there is the old steam pumping-station Cruquis. A museum has been established here, from which you can in very short time get an insight into an astounding example of Dutch water management. After this visit we will cross the river Spaarne with the small on solar power driven ferry.     On the other side we will continue to cycle towards the centre of Haarlem. Haarlem gave its name to "Harlem" New York.An old town with an interesting history which calls for an evening walk.

Today you can choose between a bike tour from Haarlem to Amsterdam or stay on the boat and spend the day in Ämsterdam. After the bikers take the boat will sail straight to Amsterdam (e.t.a. 12.00)

Amsterdam is certainly well worth to spend some more time because of its many possibilities: a boat tour around the canals, the Van Gogh museum, and the Rijks museum; or just savor the atmosphere. 

For dinner you can pick one of the many nice restaurants in the centre of town.
