      The Hanseatic Tour in Deventer shows the versatility of the Hanseatic city of Deventer; from the outskirts of the city to beautiful country estates, and the charming villages of Bathmen and Lettele. On this water-rich route you cycle along the IJssel, the Schipbeek and Zandwetering.You can easily reach Deventer by train and you can go sightseeing directly in the city. There is a lot to see. In the cozy city center you will pass the impressive Lebuïnuskerk, one of the icons of Deventer. Museum De Waag is also worth a visit. The museum gives a nice insight into the rich history of this trading city.Deventer is located right on the IJssel and you cycle the first part of the route parallel to this river. At the village of Epse, the IJssel bends south and you cycle east towards Bathmen. You are now driving on the Oxerhof estate through the beautiful green surroundings on nice gravel roads. Then you follow the Schipbeek all the way to Bathmen, a cozy village in the Salland between the beautiful forests. You will find Saxon farms with green fields and lots of cows.The route takes you further through the wooded area over the paved gravel paths and you can hear the gravel crunching under your tires. The next pit stop is in Lettele, a small welcoming Sallands countryside village. In and around the village you will find cozy places to relax with a cup of coffee and something delicious, for example at café-restaurant De Koerkamp. From Lettele you set course again towards Deventer. Leave the village via the Oerdijk and turn left at the Diepeweg. At the Cröddendijk, turn right and follow the dike for 2 kilometers along the farms and forests. Cycle a short distance over the Oerdijk again and then follow the bends of the ditches and then the straight Overijssels Canal.You slowly come back to the built-up area and the first village you visit is Schalkhaar, a village that lies against Deventer. After Schalkhaar you cycle a very nice long stretch along the Zandwetering. The Zandwetering is a largely dug waterway. In West Salland you will find more of these types of wetlands that were built in the fight against the water. From the fourteenth century, all kinds of natural streams were connected by excavation work to enable the reclamation of the low-lying wetlands.You have already cycled almost all the way around Deventer, and you can make the circle even bigger by also visiting Diepenveen. The green village is enclosed by forests and meadows and you immediately recognize the typical Salland bocage landscape, through which you cycle the last part of the route. Then you reach the port of Deventer and it is only a short distance to the end point.

      This tour takes you from medieval Kalkar to the pilgrimage town of Marienbaum and past the Roman city of Xanten.The route is not very easy to reach by train from the Netherlands, but is located on the Hanseatic Route – so you can just cycle there! The Collection with the entire Hanseatic City Cycle Route can be found here: komoot.nl/collection/1193811You will start today in cozy Kalkar with its beautiful historical monuments. After a tour around the church you cycle out of the city over the Sebastianuswall. You soon drive through the vast fields where the miles fly by. You go like a train, not surprising since this cycle path goes over the former railway track.There is a lot to experience in Xanten, but the most special attraction is the Archaeological Park Xanten (APX) with the ruins of a Roman city. In the Archaeological Park you get an idea of what life in a Roman city was like. There is a temple, the amphitheatre, the gates, the city walls, the Roman inn and several houses of craftsmen. The park also has a museum where archaeological finds are exhibited.In the center of Xanten you will travel to the Middle Ages around the market square and the cathedral. Xanten is a place of pilgrimage that has been drawing pilgrims to St. Victor's Dom (also known as Xanten Cathedral) since the Middle Ages.You leave this historic city via the harbor and drive along the Xantener Südsee back into our own era. You cycle along the water and see the sailing boats glide by on the lake. Then you reach the Rhine and cycle over the dike again. Now you don't see sailboats, but mainly large ships sailing by on the other side. If you want to enjoy the view even more, you can settle down at the Unser Lieblingscafe directly on the dike. The last part back towards Kalkar goes through the open countryside and small villages again.

      In this loop you follow the course of the Rhine. You take the bicycle ferry and cycle over the Rhine Bridge back to Emmerich aan de Rijn. Emmerich is just across the border and you can easily reach the town by train.While you are cycling along the pleasant Rhine promenade, you should do your best not to settle down directly on one of the terraces. The culinary promenade is tempting, but is still there this afternoon. From the Rijnpark you can see the containers in the port. It is clear that Emmerich is a trading town. The port, which was first used in the 17th century, now covers approximately 45,000 m² with two berths and two container cranes.You then cycle over the dike to Dornick through the Dornicksche Waard, a beautiful green area where you will even find dunes. Here you also drive past the airport for the gliders, with good weather you can wave to the pilots. You continue cycling along the dike past the villages of Praest and Bienen.After Bienen, you cross the Bieener Althrein and cycle through the wonderfully peaceful, vast landscape. At Grietherort you cross the Rhine with the ferry. Please note, the ferry does not run every day so before you cycle this route, first check this website with the current sailing times: niederrheinfaehre.de/f%C3%A4hrzeiten Omcycling via Rees and there with the bridge reaching the other side is of course also possible, but it is quite a turn.Grieth is the perfect place to take a break, especially Griether Hanselädchen's cafe is very nice. If you want to spoil yourself extra, you can spend the night as a noble at Grieth's castle.Then it's time to return to Emmerich. On the long road along the Rhine you can dream away while watching the ships pass by in the water from a distance. You can see the bridge that you will cross to reach the city from afar. This gigantic German version of the Golden Gate Bridge is even more spectacular at night when it is lit all red. From the culinary Rijnboulevard you have a magnificent view. So on to the terrace!

      Along the route you will find the Lower Rhine brewery, idyllic farm cafes, beer gardens and restaurants and you cross the river via a bridge as well as by ferry!The route starts in Wesel near the train station. A long gray Hanzel ribbon runs through the pedestrian zone of Wesel. The stone band bears the names of the 185 cities that belong to the Hanseatic League of Modern Times or the Westphalian Hanseatic League. Which ones have you already visited?Cycle through the beautiful city center of Wesel past the rebuilt Wilibrordi Dom and the historic town hall. Then you cycle to the banks of the Rhine. From the old pillar of the former railway bridge you can gaze out over the water. The river promenade is very cozy and you could almost linger on a terrace. But there is still plenty to discover on this bike ride.For example, you drive further along the Auesee and then the Waldsee. Past Bislich you cross the Rhine with the ferry (bislich.de/content/mensenfaehre-keer-troech-ii) and on the other side you can enjoy a nice lunch with a beautiful view.The cycle path through the Bislicher Insel nature reserve is a real pleasure, with all the natural beauty and rich animal life. The tranquility attracts many birds, and cyclists, of course, who in turn enjoy the birds.Through Ginderich and Buderich you cycle back to the banks of the Rhine. Over the Rhine Bridge you first cross the Rhine and then the river Lippe. This way you cycle back into Wesel, directly to the impressive citadel. In the star-shaped building you will learn more about the history of the region, an absolute must and a nice end to a nice cycling day.

      Experience the green side of Neuss by bike, past the most beautiful sights such as the rose garden of Neuss or the natural monument Groov'sche Loch.The route starts in Neuss at the train station. In Germany, just like in the Netherlands, you can take your bike with you if you buy a ticket for it. If you have any questions when you arrive in Neuss, it is best to first go to the Tourist Information Neuss. Whether you're looking for a city map, a tour or a hotel room - the on-site team provides expert advice and has an answer to almost anything.Fully prepared, the bike ride can finally start, first of all along the most beautiful church in Neuss. If you walk across the church square with your bike, you will probably find a terrace where you can plop down when you return. From the Quirinis-Münster you cycle to the beautiful city gardens of Neuss.The route then takes you a bit out of the city, to the dike from where you look out on the river Rhine, the lifeblood of the city - especially in the Hanseatic period. Along the edge of the city you cycle through a green environment all the way around Neuss. The good cycle path is surrounded by trees, which is very pleasant on a hot summer day.After you have cycled around the Vogelsang district, you will return to the inner city, or in German 'Innenstadt'. Once back at the start, you can finally go to that terrace that you had already chosen earlier today...

      Discover the long and lively history of Maasbommel: from the Sint-Lambertuskerk and De Tuut steam pumping station to Hernen Castle.The route starts in Nijmegen, easy if you come by train. You cycle along the Kaaisjouwerskade on the Weurtseweg in the direction of Weurt. With the lock you cross the Maas-Waal canal, it is then only a short distance to Weurt. Here you pass the Sint-Andreaskerk, a Roman Catholic church building in Weurt. The church was built in stages between 1895 and 1898 and has a neo-Gothic style.On the dike in the Beuningse floodplains you have a beautiful view over the Waal. But there is also plenty to see closer by: the herbs on the roadside and the bees that come to them, the small villages that you pass, you will be amazed. After Boven-Leeuwen, turn left and cycle straight through the farmland. All the way to Nieuweschans from where you have the water at your side again.Those who are hungry can enjoy a nice lunch in Maasbommel, for example at restaurant De Korenmolen. Maasbommel was the smallest Hanseatic city in the Netherlands in the Middle Ages. The village is located in the Land van Maas en Waal on the Maas and has a long, lively history. Due to its good location, it was an important link in the Northern European Hanseatic Network.You cycle further along the Maas, which is busy with recreation, and the Dijk takes you past Appeltern and then Batenburg. At the Liendense Waard you leave the Molendijk and set course for Hernen. The estate and the Hernense forest are a nice green change from the open dyke you cycled so far on.You might even want to stop at Landgoed Heerlijkheid Leur and take a walk through the woods. It is still a long way to cycle back to the city and there is still a lot to discover in Nijmegen. So keep the time in mind and don't get lost in the woods. The last kilometers on the farmland are fast and you then cycle another 10 kilometers through the built-up area on good bicycle paths.If you still want to discover Nijmegen on foot, all you have to do is look at the ground. There is a green ribbon through the streets that leads you along all the beautiful places. The route is 7 kilometers long, but of course you can also just choose a small part!

      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.

      Get on your bike and be amazed in the Arnhem region! Along the way you can admire the rich flora and fauna of National Park De Veluwezoom. The route starts in the Hanseatic city of Arnhem, near the train station.You cycle between the old town and the Musispark towards the Airborneplein and then along the quay of the Lower Rhine. From the dike you already have a beautiful view over the Lower Rhine. Cross the Kleefse Waard and then cycle along the dike along the floodplains of the IJssel, where the wind has free rein.After 15 kilometers you cross Rheden, a cozy little village located right on a beautiful heath and forest area. Drive parallel to the railway all the way through De Steeg, here you turn right to Kasteel Middachten. Middachten Castle is one of the largest private estates in the Netherlands and the gardens can be visited (for a fee). After the castle you cycle back into the floodplains. With a bit of luck you will have tailwind and you can blow into Doesburg in no time.Doesburg originated thousands of years ago as a settlement on the river dunes and is now mainly known as the mustard city. But you will also find the oldest café in the Netherlands. With 25 kilometers in the legs, this is a nice place for a first break. After a short walk through the medieval streets, and perhaps a visit to the artisanal mustard factory, it's time to get back on the road. Cycle further and follow the bend of the meandering IJssel. 500 meters after Minicamping 't Hofke, turn left on Dierenseweg, from where you get on the ferry to Dieren (veerpont-dieren.nl/#naar-vaartijden).You can already see the Dierense Toren from afar, and with the city and the tower on your right you cycle into the Veluwezoom National Park just before Ellecom. Cycle through untouched nature with forests, moors, sand drifts and estates. Characteristic of the Veluwezoom is the relief and you can feel that in the legs. Veluwezoom National Park is part of the Veluwe, a nature reserve that stretches from the IJssel to the Gelderse Vallei and from the Rhine to Harderwijk. There is a good chance that you will come face to face with Scottish Highlanders and sheep and maybe even wild boars and red deer.After a long descent you arrive at the estate of Rosendael Castle, where you can visit (for a fee) the castle, the gardens, the cheaters, shell gallery, tea cupola, ponds and fountains (rosendael.glk.nl /).After Rozendaal you still have a small climb to go until you cycle back into the city via the Arnhemse Allee and drive back to where you started the route today.

      A tour along the Kamper village centers and the impressive city front of Kampen. From the IJssel to the former Zuiderzee: you will be amazed!The route starts in the Hanseatic city of Kampen, not far from the train station. The start is immediately remarkable. The City Bridge with the golden wheels immediately catches the eye, as does the 'skyline' of Kampen. No high-rise buildings, but historic buildings, gates and churches determine the face of this Hanseatic city.You quickly exchange the city for the equally beautiful surrounding nature. In the floodplains of the IJssel, you can gaze endlessly over the water. From the dike you have a beautiful view. You will soon reach Wilsum, where the oldest church in Overijssel is located. Wilsum is also rich in natural beauty: both the Scherenwelle and the Koppelerwaard are beautiful nature reserves.Cycle further along the Veecatordijk to the Zalkerveer. The only spring where you don't really mind if you just miss this one. That means that you have time to settle down at the associated tea house. Once on the other side, you cycle through Zalk, a beautiful village located on the south bank of the IJssel. When you drive on the dike you have a beautiful view of the village. Set course west, back towards Kampen. You are now cycling across the street from where you just cycled.After 18 kilometers you cross the Reevediep, over the Scheeresluis. This is a new lock that is part of the large-scale water project 'room for the river'. The battle against water recently changed the landscape around Kampen. The Reevediep is now located between the IJssel and the Drontermeer. In extreme weather, this new water connection drains the high water from the IJssel to the IJsselmeer. Cyclists benefit from miles of new routes.Choose whether you cycle a nice loop along the Vossemeer or directly back to Kampen. The lively medieval Hanseatic city is bustling with activity, which is very interesting to see with your own eyes. Fishermen, craftsmen and merchants used to provide activity in the nautical city on the banks of the IJssel and you can still taste that lively atmosphere.

      Zwolle, with its historic city center, exudes atmosphere. But the outside area is also very worthwhile. The Hanzerondje Zwolle cycle route, of more than 40 kilometers, takes you right through the green and water-rich city outskirts.Immediately after the start near the train station you cycle to the IJssel. Drive under the red railway bridge over the ancient Schellerdijk. At Katerveer you cross the water, over the bridge. Then you quickly leave the buildings behind you in the beautiful Vreugderijkerwaard. Enjoy the view over the IJssel with Zalk on the other side. At 's Heerenbroek you are far enough to bend to the right to make the round around the city. Cycle a short distance past the residential area and turn right at Ruimzichtweg towards the banks of Zwarte Water.Two kilometers further on, the river Vecht joins the Zwarte Water. You are now almost in the Hanseatic city of Hasselt. A city full of character with attractive facades, leafy streets and hidden places. Here you will definitely find a nice place for a lunch break.You cycle out of the Hanseatic city under the Stenendijk. What follows is a beautiful long stretch through the floodplains. With the Haersterveer you reach the other side and you cycle along the Agnietenberg the last part around Zwolle. At the large hospital Isala you cycle back into the bustling student city.The streets of the medieval city center have a lively atmosphere. Merchants of the Hanseatic League used to be in charge here, nowadays it is students, entrepreneurs and creatives who provide the dynamics. A spirit of commerce and an entrepreneurial spirit make Zwolle a city where you will never be bored.
