    Discover the surroundings of the oldest city in the Netherlands! Along the way you will pass various sights, from the Roman Mask to the Saint Nicholas Chapel.The route starts in Nijmegen directly at the train station. You quickly leave the crowds behind when you cycle towards the Waal along the Kronenburgerpark. You look out your eyes along the quay. On the one hand to what is happening on the water and on land to the interesting art objects.Then you drive inland around the Valkhof, a hill with a small park. Hop off to visit the Barbarossa ruins and St. Nicholas Chapel. The chapel is one of the two original chapels in the Valkhof castle in Nijmegen. It is one of the oldest buildings in the Netherlands. On the other side of the park is the Belvédère, a tower built in the mid-15th century as a rampart. Above the entrance are two copies of gable stones, the top one dating from 1646.Along the edge of the city you have a magnificent view over the floodplains. For that view you first have to climb a bit, up the Ravenberg. Fortunately, that also means that you can go down again afterwards. With the Duivelsberg on your left, you roll down the slope. The rest of the route is completely flat again.You cycle 5 kilometers over German territory from the border town of Wyler. When you have reached the Thornsche windmill, you know that you are back in the Netherlands. This is also a nice place if you are in need of coffee break.You cycle along the dike through a beautiful nature reserve, all the way to Millingen aan de Rijn. From here, the Bijlandse Waard will take you across (kievitsveerdiensten.com/index.php/nl/millingen-aan-de-rijn-pannerden). Cycle across the lock to Pannerden. Then you take the ferry again to the other side in Sterreschans (veerdienstdoornenburg.nl/waarden).If you prefer to shorten the tour a bit and only take the ferry once, you can also choose to cycle through the Millingerwaard and from there take the bicycle ferry directly to Doornenburg. It would be a shame to skip Doornenburg Castle, so cycle a little against the route. The castle is gigantic and you can take interesting guided tours. The coffee in the courtyard is also very worthwhile.You follow the bends of the meandering Waal back towards Nijmegen. On the way you pass the village of Gendt and further on, De Kinkelenburg Castle in Bemmel. Afterwards you cycle along the water and even in between on the Waal bank. Here you look at Nijmegen through the eyes of the mask, before you cover the last kilometers over the bicycle and railway bridge and cycle back into the city.
