Day 2 - Cycle tour Volendam, approx. 78 kmChoose from four routes. For example a tour to Marken, Volendam and Edam to the coast of the former Zuiderzee. Marken and Volendam are fishing villages, Volendam shipped salty cheese loafs to the rest of the world. The 78 km long route leads you through postcard-like idyllic landscapes. Or you do a shorter bike tour of 46 km to Haarlem, with one of the most beautiful old towns of Holland.
Day 3 - Cycle tour Muiden, approx. 63 kmChoose from four routes today too. The track to Muiden Castle is 63 km long. Here you will experience military content. The town of Naarden is a good example of a star-shaped fortress (Check it out on GoogleMaps!). It is well preserved with all its walls and the moat. Next you will arrive at the town of Muiden, at the mouth of the river Vecht. Although Muiden is picturesque itself, it is well known for its tiny water castle, built in 1280 – worth a visit anyways.
Day 4 - Cycle tour Zaandam, approx. 45 kmThe last of our four routes will lead you to Zandaam and back. Because of wind energy the area around the river Zaan was industrialized already a long time ago. Hundreds of sawmills made the construction of the enormous merchant fleet possible, which led Amsterdam to wealth. This route is fantastic for everyone who is interested in industrial culture! In addition to old factories and warehouses along the river, you could really look forward to seeing the beautiful windmills in Zaanse Schans, where mustard, paint and oil are still produced until today. Take a look at the various clips on Youtube to get a taste of Zaanse Schans. At sunset you will return to Amsterdam and could end your day with a stroll around the romantic canal district.
Day 5 - Individual departure or extra nightsAfter breakfast it is unfortunately time to pack your bags. Maybe you have a couple of hours left to enjoy Amsterdam. There are big lockers at the train station where you could leave your bags while exploring.
