The journey through the two cities is like a journey through time along Gothic facades, historic merchant houses and old quays.The beautiful bike tour takes you from Zutphen along the IJssel south to Doesburg. In this Hanseatic city is invited once a month for cultural Sunday. Then you can visit for free a selection of professional artists' studios, renowned galleries, antique dealers and museums. In Doesburg, you can also add your mustard everywhere, such as the Doesburg mustard soup, which is offered in many variations in the city's restaurants.On the way back to Zutphen you will cycle through the charming village of Bronkhorst. It is one of the oldest towns in the Netherlands and ideal for a stopover. Then the bike tour continues through the river floodplains back to the starting point Zutphen, which is also known as the tower city, because several towers characterize the skyline of this Hanseatic city. Here you can end the day with a visit to the recently opened Hof van Heeckeren Museum or a shopping tour in the historic city center.
