From the hills of the Maas valley, typical Dutch river landscapes with idyllic villages and historic fortified towns such as Woudrichem, to the bustling metropole of Rotterdam with its impressive harbour and modern architecture - the LF Maas Cycle Route takes you on a varied  journey along the River Maas. Thanks to the river, trade thrived in the historic towns of Dordrecht, Den Bosch and Maastricht.

Nature lovers can enjoy the unique wildlife in National Park De Biesbosch, one of the last freshwater tidal areas in Europe.
