    Cycling along the Linie of 1629 through the outskirts of 's-Hertogenbosch. Over a length of 49 kilometers, beautiful nature and impressive cultural history alternate constantly.In the spring of 1629, Prince Frederik Hendrik set up camp outside the city walls of 's-Hertogenbosch. In a few weeks' time he had two dikes built around the city, almost two meters high. The outer was aimed at outside attacks; the inner one served for attacks towards the city. A long siege of five months began in which 's-Hertogenbosch was continuously bombarded, until a breach was made in a stronghold and the position of the city became untenable. On September 14, 1629, the Bossche garrison had to give up the fight.The Linie 1629 cycle route follows the remnants of the built dikes and takes you past the most important places of the siege of 's-Hertogenbosch. Discover the important military works and enjoy the beautiful nature and views. During the route there are plenty of cozy catering points with a terrace to relax and enjoy a snack and a drink. A wonderfully varied route of 49 kilometers through 's-Hertogenbosch, Heusden, Sint-Michielsgestel and Vught.Special signs have been placed along the entire route with 'Linie 1629'. The route can be started at any point and runs in a closed circle around the city.
