Holland-Cycling.com is an internet guide to cycling in Holland. We do not organise cycling holidays ourselves. To help you on your way, we made a selection of the most popular cycling holidays offered by Dutch tour operators. The information on this page is provided by the tour operator.

Fortresses and fortified towns

The Dutch Water Line was a line of defensive works used from 1629 to 1940, combining fortresses and the flooding of low-lying areas to keep enemies at bay. On this tour you will pass by a number of these fortresses.
