Drum rolls, roaring canon fire, clashing arms - the LF Maas Cycle Route brings to life the history of the various defence works along the River Maas. The route takes you through fortified towns and past impressive castles overlooking the water. Thanks to the river, trade thrived in the historic towns of Dordrecht, Den Bosch, Nijmegen and Maastricht.

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

Combine this long-distance route with a day trip. We recommend:
