Around Ijsselmeer

Trading towns, dreamlike harbors and the peaceful sea.

This trip at the Ijsselmeer will be as beautiful as days at the sea, even if the dikes bay is today filled with fresh water. But it still promises the vastness of the sea and has never lost its maritime charm. Beautiful beaches as well as picturesque fishing villages prove this. The round trip takes you to an old fortified town and a former hanseatic metropolis, to smoked eel and cheese specialties, to water sports paradises and to harbor facilities. It also becomes an experience through fascinating nature with partly extraordinary vegetation and wildlife. Experience the Ijsselmeer as the perfect backdrop for a wonderful holiday.

Itinerary

Individual arrival in Harderwijk. In the afternoon you get some travel information and your bike (if booked). Discover the medieval Hanseatic city. A walk through the city leads you almost always past the Church of Our Lady (Onze Lieve Vrouwekerk). It is a basilica with a three-part elevation from the 14th and 15th century. You stay one night in Harderwijk.

Look forward to the Arkemheen-Eemland National Park and the wide, flat landscape with its extraordinary vegetation. Black-tailed godwits strut across the moor. You cycle alongside the banks of the Randmeren to Huizen, the twin village on the Eemmeer with costumes and fishing museum. Naarden is a beautiful city in the green Gooi region and one of the best-preserved fortress cities in Europe. It was one of the most important defenses of the New Dutch Waterline, which still amazes people today. On your way, you reach the medieval moated castle "Muidenschloss".

During your tour alongside the IJsselmeer, you reach the medieval moated castle "Muidenschloss". Your way leads you to Volendam. Enjoy the historic buildings, the magnificent museums and the cozy atmosphere. Take a tour on the canals, walk through the Vondelpark, visit the floating flower market and shop in the old city center. Volendam is really unique! You stay overnight in Volendam.

In Edam, you will soon discover that the town has more to give than the world-famous cheese. Hoorn is a small shopper's paradise with numerous terrace cafes and restaurants to enjoy and rest. The picturesque town of Enkhuizen attracts thousands of tourists every year. Some love it because of its many historic buildings and monuments, others because of its harbor and the optimal water sports facilities. Take a city walk to visit the Zuiderzeemuseum with its replicated old Zuiderzee town. You have an overnight stay in Enkhuizen. (approx. 53-57 km)

Today you cycle over a 32 km long dike to Lelystad with the Batavialand, which lets you travel through 7000 years of Dutch history. The destination of your tour today is again Harderwijk. Here begins your individual return journey or your extended stay.
