Individual arrival in Harderwijk. In the afternoon you get some travel information and your bike (if booked). Discover the medieval Hanseatic city.

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.
