EuroVelo 19 Meuse Cycle Route

From Den Bosch to the North Sea, along the Rhine-Meuse Delta

From Den Bosch, the Meuse Cycle Route first leads you to the fortified town of Woudrichem before contining through the Biesbosch National Park, one of the last extensive areas of freshwater tidal wetlands in Northwestern Europe. You will visit the island of Dordrecht and then cycle on top of dykes through the Hoeksche Waard National Landscape. In Vlaardingen and Maassluis, you will see towns that have long been associated with fishing and shipping while Hoek van Holland is a bathing area on the North Sea, where you can also view ships along the New Waterway. This is why it came to be called the "Gateway to Rotterdam".
