Cycling Holiday Based at Muiderberg [4-04]

For the duration of this cycling holiday you will reside at Het Rechthuis Hotel in the village of Muiderberg. Find peace and tranquillity in this lovely area nestled in between Het Gooi nature reserve and the Vecht Region boasting lakes and the meandering River Vecht. Within cycling distance you will discover the star-shaped fortifications of the town of Naarden, as well as Muiden Castle and Naarden Lake. Surrounded by two areas of woodland, the village has a countryside-feel to it although in actual fact it is quite central, near to Amsterdam and Almere. It is in an ideal location for cyclists to make several interesting day trips. During your stay, you can choose from a number of different bicycle routes. It’s up to you to decide where you want to go and how far you want to cycle. If you want to cycle on the arrival and / or departure day, please request extra days of bicycle rental through the remarks field in the booking form.

Day 1            Arrival Muiderberg
Free parking at the hotel (no reservation required). If you plan to arrive by public transport, you should be aware that the town of Muiderberg doesn’t have a train station. There’s a bus service for the last 30 minutes of your journey.

Day 2 or 3     Oostvaardersplassen - 74 km
Oostvaardersplassen wetland is nature at its purest, a rare thing in this country. It developed all by itself when it was left alone by man after Flevo Polder was reclaimed from the sea in 1968. Although, it is relatively young for a reserve, it is undoubtedly unique, precious and beautiful. With a surface area of 6000 hectares it is the largest wetland in the country. The rough grasslands are grazed by hundreds of Konik ponies, roe deer and Heck cattle.

Day 2 or 3     Loosdrechtse Plassen - 55 km
The landscape between the cities of Amsterdam and Utrecht is wet, typically Dutch, and dotted with picturesque villages. Experience the wide-open countryside and wonderful lake vistas. The emptiness of the space around you - sometimes reaching to the horizon – and the huge skies above, give one a joyous feeling of freedom.  Along the banks of meandering River Vecht you will reach the village of Weesp, a place you won’t want to miss. 

Day 2 or 3     ‘t Gooi - 62 km
Set off for Naarden, one of the best-preserved fortified towns in Europe. Proceed to the polder: Arkemheen-Eemland. You’ll be amazed by the extreme openness of this unique landscape characterized by peat meadows. Further on, heather fields at the wood’s edge make for a kind of bocage landscape that is quite captivating.  How wonderful to be able to cycle back to your hotel in these natural surroundings.

Day 2 or 3     Marken - 74 km
Follow the IJsselmeer past Muiden castle and the beautiful dyke villages of Durgerdam and Uitdam to the former Zuiderzee island of Marken. Marken is known for its green wooden houses and traditional costumes. The way back leads through Waterland, a sparsely populated area with many ditches interspersed with meadows. Enjoy the tranquility and views. If the distance to Marken is too far, you can shorten the route at various places, for example in the summermonths by using the ferry at the isolated village of Holysloot.
