red-light district which attracts millions of curious tourists every year; or
enjoy the street performers on friendly Rembrandtplein.


icon Day 2 : Amsterdam to Gouda

Location:

  Amsterdam, Gouda


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Accommodation Name:

  Hotel Gouda


Meals Included:

  Breakfast


Today's route takes you through the Green Heart of Holland, a true cycling
paradise, with characteristic peat and polder landscapes, small farming
communities and picturesque historical towns such as Oudewater. It was to
this place that women who had been accused of witchcraft fled from all over
Europe to try to have their innocence proven by weighing. Finish your ride in
medieval Gouda, discover this beautifully preserved town centre, visit the
Gothic town hall and St. John's church. Stop off at a bakery to buy fresh
syrup waffles (Gouda is the hometown of the famous stroopwafels) and pick up
some Gouda cheese. If 49mi/79km is a little too far for you to cycle you can
take the train for the last section reducing the route to 35mi/56km.

icon Day 3 : Gouda to Papendrecht

Location:

  Gouda, Papendrecht


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Accommodation Name:

  Apollo Hotel Papendrecht


Meals Included:

  Breakfast


From Gouda you'll continue through the Green Heart of Holland to the village
of Kinderdijk. Explore the site on which 19 windmills have stood majestically
since 1740 and used to drain excess water out of the low-lying polder up into
the River Lek. You can even pay one of the mills a visit. Your destination,
Papendrecht, is just a ferry crossing away from of one of Holland’s oldest
towns; Dordrecht, which is completely surrounded by rivers. Beautiful bridges
take you across the water into the heart of town with its many monumental
buildings around the harbour. The hotel in Papendrecht is just 3km outside
the centre of Dordrecht on the north banks of the river.

icon Day 4 : Papendrecht to Bergen op Zoom

  Papendrecht, Bergen op Zoom


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Accommodation Name:

  The Grand Hotel De Draak


Meals Included:

  Breakfast


Follow today's route past one of the few remaining freshwater tidal areas in
Europe: the Biesbosch National Park. Crossing a one-kilometre-long bridge
high above Holland's Diep river, you arrive in the south of the Netherlands.
Continue through village after village, with Brabant hospitality enticing you
in to stop for a cup of coffee and a big slice of fruit tart. Bergen op Zoom,
today's destination, is 800 years old and the town's narrow streets, old
squares and hundreds of monuments testify to a rich and dramatic past. Be
sure to feast your eyes on Markiezenhof, a late-gothic mansion built by the
local noble family in 1485, that now serves as a museum and archive, before
you settle down at one of the many pavement cafes.
*/Please note you will only be able to cycle through the Biesbosch park on
days when the ferry is running, which is not daily. An alternative route will
be provided for days when there is no ferry service./*

icon Day 5 : Bergen op Zoom to Antwerp

Location:

  Bergen op Zoom, Antwerp


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Accommodation Name:

  Hampton by Hilton Antwerp


Meals Included:

  Breakfast


The landscape along today's cycling route is predominantly wooded. On the
border between the Netherlands and Belgium, catch your breath in De Zoom -
Kalmthoutse Heide, a lovely cross-border nature reserve. The route takes you
along the Scheldekaaien (quays on the River Scheldt) right into the
historical heart of Antwerp, Belgium's most important port city and the
largest town in Flanders. After seeing the historical centre you might like
to venture to the hip and trendy parts of the city: 't Zuid and Het Eilandje.
If you've worked up a thirst on your journey, consider a visit to the De
Koninck beer brewery. It has been going strong since 1833 and has a new
visitors centre welcoming guests wishing to look around and do some tasting.
This brewery is best known for its 'bollekes', a type of rounded beer glass.

icon Day 6 : Antwerp to Leuven

Location:

  Antwerp, Leuven


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Accommodation Name:

  Radisson Park Inn


Meals Included:

  Breakfast


After a short stretch on the banks of the River Scheldt, change course to
follow the River Rupel, the shortest river in the country (nearly 10 km
long). Along the way you'll see abandoned brick works and chimneys as silent
witnesses of a tough industrial past. A good place to stop for lunch is the
old town of Mechelen, within sight of the church tower of 13th century St.
Rombold's cathedral or the Grand Place with its fabulous architecture.
Continue along the River Dijle to end your day in the delightful university
town of Leuven, where the oldest houses date back to the 14th and 15th
centuries. Discover the Grand Beguinage, a community for spinsters, set up in
1234, it consists of 100 houses and is now part of the university campus.
Also visit the early-Gothic church of St. John the Baptist (1304) and the Old
Market Square (Oude Markt), nicknamed 'the longest bar counter in the world'
due to the enormous number of bars and cafes on the square.

icon Day 7 : Leuven to Brussels

Location:

  Leuven, Brussels


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Accommodation Name:

  NH Brussels Grand Place


Meals Included:

  Breakfast


The hills of Belgian Brabant and the expansive Sonian Forest set the scene
for today's cycle. There are also train options if you don't feel like
cycling into the big city of Brussels. The city's main attraction is the
fantastic Grand Place and the nearby little statue of Manneken Pis still
draws the crowds although there's plenty more to see. Your visit to Brussels
should involve culinary treats such as delicious hot waffles, chocolate,
triple-fried frites and beer. You should also enjoy the shopping and culture.
You'll be hard-pushed not to want to stay longer.
