Discover Amsterdam and its beautiful metropolitan region with the Cycleseeing bike routes from I amsterdam. Learn about the history and tradition of Dutch merchant shipping, get a breath of fresh air on the coast or visit centuries-old castles while cycling through vast fields of flowers. Amsterdam is much more than canals and clogs!

Hop on wherever you want. You can pick up the routes from anywhere, so you don't necessarily even have to travel to Amsterdam to start.

Here’s what you need to bring:
A bicycle: bring your own or rent a bike from one of the many rental companies.
A (rain) jacket: nothing is as unpredictable as the weather!
A smartphone: use it to download the Komoot map (and of course to take pictures during your trip)
A sense of adventure: make the cycle route as long and complicated as you like
Snacks: or drop in at one of the many outdoor cafes along the route
