Rural Amsterdam

(45,0 km)
Want to escape the city for a while? Not in the mood for hustle and bustle? Then check out this cycle trail. If you cycle briskly from Central Station, in no time you will find yourself in a peaceful haven.

After crossing the Schellingwouder bridge (junction 52), you leave the city is behind you and will see the vast Waterland stretching in front of you. An open peat meadow area through which old stream channels of the peat rivers the Ae and the Die windingly meander. Cycle along equally winding dykes and paths through a richly floral area with endless grasslands, swaying reed and numerous ponds. In the small villages, such as Durgerdam and Holysloot for example, the typical Waterland dwellings (often made of wood with many coiling details) and bridges remind us of bygone times, as though time has stood still here.

You can rent a bike at Starbikes Rental. From the bicycle rental to the first junction: 

  • Take a left turn and cycle in the direction of the station.

How it works
You cycle the trail with the help of the so-called junction system. A junction is a uniquely numbered spot where two cycle paths cross each other. The trails in this book are set out on the basis of these numbers. The only thing you have to do is follow the numbers in the sequence in which they are presented. You can recognise the junctions by the green and white signs along the way
