From quiet rural landscapes to hectic city hotspots - the LF2 combines typically Dutch and Belgian landscapes with very diverse cities en route: Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Dordrecht, Antwerp and Brussels. As a bonus the LF2 also offers an alternative route through the market town of Gouda, famous for its cheese. It joins up again at one of Holland’s most popular tourist attractions: the windmills of Kinderdijk.
