The region of Flanders in Belgium is undoubtedly a paradise for cyclists. Especially on the coast and in the near-natural province of Limburg, recreational cyclists will find ideal conditions. A well-developed network of cycle paths runs through the whole country, cafés, restaurants and pubs care for your physical well-being on the way, while idyllic landscapes form the perfect backdrop for relaxing hours. There is also a lot to see and experience: Charming villages and historic towns, beaches and nature reserves, castles and fortresses, cycle paths along the sea and Meuse, polder landscapes and fruit orchards.

The coastline is only 67 kilometers (41 miles) long and offers a wide range of possibilities for longer or shorter rides. The mostly flat paths lead through quiet polder landscapes and along busy beach promenades. You should not miss a detour to the dunes with their typical flora and fauna. As a reward for peddling you can enjoy a famous Belgian beer on a beach terrace with a sea view.

In Limburg, you'll cycle through orchards and past industrial monuments from the region's mining past. The region is crisscrossed by rolling hills, forests and heathlands. Those who prefer flat paths can choose to cycle along the Meuse. Magnificent castles and palaces, dreamy farms and numerous cafés invite you to a break, while culinary delights reward you for the effort you put in in the saddle.
