From the epic battle against the sea in Zeeland to Burgundian living in Brabant and Limburg - the LF13 shows you two completely different worlds separated by the Schelde-Rijnkanaal.

From typically Dutch coastal landscapes with towering dykes and open polders to woods, heathland, fens and sloping hills - the scenery along the LF13 couldn’t be more diverse. Stop at the former garrison towns of Flushing, Bergen op Zoom, Breda and Venlo, to get a glimpse of their shared history during the Eighty Years’ War.
Combine this long-distance route with a day trip. We recommend:
