April 20, 2018
From the Hanseatic city of Hasselt, this bike tour takes you in an easy loop on 25 kilometers around the river Zwartewater. From Hasselt you drive first a little way to the south, then turn off in a large arc to the north. On the way to Zwartsluis you will cycle on the flat track past lush green meadows and wide fields, which are crossed by innumerable dead straight canals.Halfway you reach Zwartluis. The small town with the idyllic harbor and countless restaurants invites you to rest. Well-rested and refreshed, you then take a short detour to Genemuiden, where you can visit the carpet museum, for example, before starting your way back to the starting point in Hasselt, which leads you through the beautiful wide floodplains of Zwartewater.
